Mack duo sets pianos on fire!

Athens, W.Va. - The Concord College Artist Lecture Series presents award-winning duo pianists Yuki and Tomoko Mack on September 26, 2002, at 8 p.m. in the Main Auditorium of the Alexander Fine Arts Center.

Sisters Yuki and Tomoko Mack entered the United States in 1977 after winning strong recognition for their soloist work in Japan. Upon arriving in the United States, the sisters formed a piano duo that has dazzled audiences all over the continent.

Michigan-based sisters Yuki and Tomoko are no strangers to the United States. They are also highly acclaimed in countries such as Poland, Canada, Sweden, and their native Japan.

In Japan, the Mack sisters won First Prize and the Kodomo Prize at the Fourth International Piano Duo Competition in Tokyo. They were featured artists at the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival in Michigan, and the Symposium for Two Pianos in Florida, where the Sun Sentinel wrote, “… The Mack sisters excelled … playing Smetana’s, The Moldau evocatively and brilliantly…”

The sisters have performed as soloists at the World’s Fair in Knoxville, and have been broadcasted nationally on “Televisor Lubelski” in Poland and on National Radio in Sweden.

The performance is part of Concord College’s Artist Lecture series, and the performance is open to the public. For more information contact the Concord College box office at 1-304-384-5101.
