The “homecoming concert” of pianist Anu Uranchimeg is unfortunately canceled.

Many of us will regret missing the opportunity to see (and hear) her once again, but she has an open invitation for a future visit.

The Augustana Department of Music is pleased to announce a “homecoming concert” of pianist Anu Uranchimeg, a 2017 graduate of the department currently completing her second year at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. The recital will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, in Hamre Recital Hall.

Uranchimeg is a classical pianist whose entire life has been connected with music. For more than 20 years she has studied the piano with both Russian classical music training and American musical training. Originally from Mongolia, Anu was enrolled for 13 years at the Mongolian Music and Dance Conservatory, one of the most prestigious music schools in her country. She graduated from Augustana University in 2017 where she studied with Dr. Rick Andrews and received a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance. Anu currently is a second-year graduate student at Southern Methodist University, where she studies with pianist Alfred Mouledous. She is pursuing a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance.

Anu has been performing internationally since she was 7 years old. She has performed at the Unesco Theatre in Paris, France; Conservatory of Music in Geneva, Switzerland; Passionskirche Cathedral in Berlin, Germany; Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls, SD and the Mongolian State Opera House and Mongolian State Philharmonic. She has performed as a soloist many times with orchestras such as Mongolian State Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Mongolian State Opera House Symphony Orchestra, Mongolian Music and Dance Conservatory Orchestra and the Augustana University Symphony Orchestra. Anu has wide experiences in performing in public, teaching piano, accompanying singers and instrumentalists, also serving as an orchestral pianist.

Ms. Uranchimeg’s program includes selections by Scarlatti, Debussy, Beethoven, Ginastera and Chopin. 

The recital is free and the public is invited. No advance tickets are required.
