MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Brad Knutson, a pianist and music education major at Montana State University Billings, will present his Senior Recital on Sunday, March 24th, at 3:00 P.M. in Cisel Recital Hall on the University campus.


The performance is free and open to the public. It will include the works of Scarlatti, Chopin, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Kennan, and Khachaturian.  Also included will be a selection by Morricone featuring Devin Kennedy on percussion.


Brad began playing the piano at age 8 under the instruction of Elinore Quander. He transferred to Montana State University Billings during his freshman year to study with Dorothea Cromley.  Brad enjoys teaching piano as much as playing and has successfully entered several of his students in competitions, including the Montana State Music Teachers Association festival.  In addition to studying music, Brad is a member of the MSUB Men's Tennis Team.
