On Sunday, November 19th at 2:30pm, pianists David and Stephanie Northington will present a recital of music by Bach, Schubert, Beethoven, and Schubert. The concert is free and open to the public and will be given in the nave of the Church Street United Methodist Church on Henley Street in downtown Knoxville as part of the church's "Master Arts Series."  Works to be performed on the recital include Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring", Beethoven's Piano Sonata in G Major, Op.14, Franz Schubert's Fantaisie in F minor, Op.103, and selected Mazurkas by Frederic Chopin.

David Northington recently retired after a thirty-nine year tenure with the University of Tennessee's School of Music, where he is now the Powell Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Piano.

Melony calls the beautiful mountains of Boone, N.C., home, although she was born near Greensboro, N.C. There’s just something about those Blue Ridge Mountains that got in her blood and never left after she moved there to attend Appalachian State University (ASU). While at ASU, she majored in piano performance and music therapy and began to cultivate a love for accompanying and for collaborating with other musicians. This soon led her to earn a master’s degree in collaborative piano at the University of Tennessee, which she attended from 2006-2008.
