Renowned pianist Teresa Dybvig will perform in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall at Viterbo University Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Dybvig has a Ph.D. in Piano Performance from Yale University and performs as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. She has been taught by Peter Fankl, Boris Berman, James Tocco, and Edna Golandsky.

“Listeners will praise the warmth, joy, and depth of her music and her programming provides an enjoyable combination of high quality music that is new to listeners with music that sounds more familiar,” according to her latest CD, “Moments in Time.”
Dybvig is familiar with the La Crosse area. In the fall of 1996, she was asked by Mary Ellen Haupert, now an assistant professor of music at Viterbo University, to teach a group of pianists interested in the Taubman technique. Since that time, she has made monthly visits to the area and has retrained countless pianists from the La Crosse, Twin Cities, and Chicago areas who have suffered playing-related injuries.

“I was diagnosed with incurable focal dystonia and was told I would never play again,” said Haupert “My work with Teresa on the Taubman technique turned a dead end into a story of hope. Since studying with her, I have completely retrained my right hand, allowing me to reclaim my profession as a pianist.”
