      Blair McMillen

      Pianist Blair McMillen plays works of Debussy, Marc Mellits, N. Mulley, and Joan Tower live from the Sherwood Community Music School of Columbia College Chicago on the Pianoforte Salon Series with Host Dave Schwann.

      Dedicated to new and groundbreaking projects, Blair McMillen is intensely committed to commissioning and performing the music of today. But, “when played by the formidable Mr. McMillen, any piece sounds terrific.” (NY Times)
