Season 1 Episode 7 with Guest Richard Glazier - Pianist, Raconteur & Cultural Historian
Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Richard Glazier began studying piano when he was 6 years old. He earned his Bachelor and Master degrees in Piano Performance from Indiana University School of Music and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Music. In 2007, the Institute awarded him its prestigious Alumni Achievement Award for his contributions to American Popular Song. He has also won several major international piano Competitions including the National Federation of Music Clubs Young Artist Competition and the Pro Musicis International Award.
Richard’s passion for the rich cultural heritage of early 20th century American music, which now includes contemporary standards, has led him to create special programs celebrating both eras. He plays incredible heart inspired piano arrangements, then tells the history behind the songs, sharing fascinating stories about the composers, the shows, the films and the stars. He also shares funny anecdotes. His programs often include vintage images and rare film clips. Richard has performed in almost every state and has been a soloist with Pops orchestras across the country.
He was most recently invited by the Gershwin family to tour across the country in “Rhapsody and Rhythm: The Gershwin Concert Experience.”
In addition, Richard has had three nationally broadcast television specials on PBS. The shows have won multiple awards, including four Telly Awards for Outstanding Achievement in entertainment, documentary and cultural programming.
