George Lopez, Piano

Pianist George Lopez, Bowdoin College's Robert Beckwith Artist in Residence, has been a dedicated and dynamic performer, educator, and lecturer for over 25 years. Known in Europe, South America and the US for his "...kaleidoscopic colors and clarity of conception..." (LA Times) in the standard repertoire as well as being a champion of newly written works, Mr. Lopez recently premiered a new piano concerto here in Maine and is also comfortable in styles of music ranging from jazz, ragtime to more contemporary styles of improvisation. In 2015 he toured Philadelphia, NYC, the Bay Area, Seattle, Mexico and around New England, making his first visit to Cuba last May to give masterclasses and concerts with the Aries Trio. His "Music in the Museum" series at Bowdoin College has consistently sold out to audiences who enjoy his creative and engaging lecture recitals on the relationship of music to art and ideas.
Mr. Lopez has taken up the baton and conducts the Bowdoin Chamber Orchestra made up of students from the college and local high schools. He resides in Brunswick, Maine.
