“We are very excited to open our 16th season with Alexandre,” said Emanuela Friscioni, director of Tri-C’s Classical Piano Series. “This is the debut of both the series and Dossin’s tribute to eminent African American composer George Walker, which celebrates 100 years since his birth.”
Originally from Brazil, Dossin graduated from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory and holds a doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin). He served as assistant to Sergei Dorensky at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory and to Willliam Race and Gregory Allen at UT-Austin.
