The Vola Jacobs Memorial Piano Recital
Vola O’Connor Jacobs was an integral part of the musical fabric of Augusta for most of her life. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, she returned to her home town of Augusta, performed often as soloist and concerto artist, and taught many hundreds of piano students, some of whom have become teachers of the next generation of pianists.
This concert is the 2018-19 Vola Jacobs Memorial Piano Recital, presented in memory of the significant contribution she made to music in Augusta and throughout the Southeastern United States.
"The performance of Dinara Klinton…carried me away in a whirlwind of expression."
Róza Swiatczynska, Polish Radio 2
