Summertime at the Eastman School of Music gives a chance for the school's faculty to step front and center with their own recitals. July will feature a full lineup of Summer at Eastman concerts, including performances by Dave Rivello, Bob Sneider, Charles Pillow, Sophia Gibbs Kim, and Kenneth Kam. The July run begins on Sunday with pianists Olga Shupyatskaya, Director of Graduate Advising and Services and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Piano Literature at the Eastman School, and Futaba Niekawa, an Eastman alumna and a lecturer at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music. The pianists will trade off performances during a program that features works by J.S. Bach (Partita No. 3 in A Minor), Franz Schubert (a selection from his second set of "Four Impromptus"), and Franz Liszt (the "Dante Sonata" from the composer's "Years of Pilgrimage").

Olga Shupyatskaya and Futaba Niekawa will perform Sunday, July 1, at Eastman's Hat Recital Hall, 433 East Main Street. 1 p.m. $10 general; free for students with UR ID. 274-3000; eastmantheatre.org.
