Martin Katz, collaborative pianist
Internationally renowned collaborative pianist Martin Katz has been dubbed “the gold standard of accompanists” by The New York Times. His 45-year career has taken him to five continents, collaborating with the world's most celebrated singers in recital and recording. Marilyn Horne, Frederica von Stade, Kathleen Battle, David Daniels, Karita Mattila and Jose Carreras are among his regular partners, and he has recorded for RCA, CBS, BMG, EMI and Decca labels.
Katz comes to Blair to lead our annual weekend of collaborative master classes, working with teams of student singers and pianists.
Classes will be held 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, and noon-2 p.m. and 3-4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Participation in the classes is limited to Blair students by audition, but the public is welcome to attend and observe.
