Grand Encounters 23/24

The season concludes with 1981 American Pianists Awards winner Sara Davis Buechner’s autobiographical theater show, "Of Pigs and Pianos,” which details her journey through music and life as a transgender woman coming of age in New York City at the end of the 20th century.

The New York Times describes the show as “offering fine performances of nine varied and challenging works that poignantly defined moments in the journey of a courageous artist...Buechner’s story, though often wrenching, was rich with childhood fantasies, wistful longings and absurd turns that had the audience laughing along."
