Description

Please join us at the Central Library as we celebrate art and music as part of our Adult Summer Reading Program. On June 11 we will host pianist Don Ryan. 

A commanding and dynamic pianist, Donald Ryan has been called “a music kaleidoscope, sparkling at
everything he plays.” This "everything" encompasses the arenas of classical, religious/inspirational, pop,
jazz and ragtime. His virtuosity and amazing gift of improvisation have delighted audiences throughout
the U. S. A. - Carnegie Hall included - as well as in England, France, Germany, Austria, Poland, Spain,
Switzerland, the Caribbean and South America.

Mr. Ryan has the unique distinction of receiving both a diploma and special award at the International
Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Poland (1975), as well as having been inducted into the
Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame (2006). Among the many luminaries he has played with are Simon Estes,
William Warfield, Leona Mitchell, Henry Mancini, Ralph Carmichael, Red Skelton, Eddie Daniels,
Diahann Carroll, Johnny Desmond, and Joe Williams. There are more than a dozen recordings on which
he is featured. He has performed at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center and with several symphony
orchestras throughout the mid-America region.
