MGS Presents James Giles, piano
Music for a Great Space opens the Season of Inspiration with "riveting, intelligent" pianist James Giles. A North Carolina native, Giles currently serves as professor at Northwestern University. Giles is equally at home in the standard repertoire as in the music of our time and has commissioned and premiered works by Ned Rorem and Earl Wild among many others.
