The Akron First Seventh-day Adventist church will be hosting a concert by Dr. Calvin Taylor on Saturday, July 12 at 8pm. There is no charge for admission.
Dr. Taylor has toured throughout the world, performing in North and South America, Europe, Ukraine, and the Far East. Holding degrees in music from Oberlin Conservatory, The University of Michigan, and the University of Kentucky, Calvin has authored several music books and has ten solo recordings to his credit. Movements from his Sunrise Symphony have been performed by several orchestras including Nashville, Shreveport, South Arkansas, and Detriot Symphony Orchestras.
Awarded a full scholarship to Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, Calvin Taylor’s ability to improvise led him to become the first student in the school’s over one hundred fifty-year histroy to improvise a graduate concert encore. And with an unusually large hand span of over 1 1/2 octaves, Dr. Taylor presents sounds and colors at the keyboard which would normally require four hands.
