The piano recital, “Forward Looking Back,” showcases 75 years of music. Pieces include works by William Bolcom, Dana Suesse, Ned Rorem, Erik Griswold and George Harrison of The Beatles and will feature the world premiere of “Without Words” by Kirsten Soriano.  

McCright, a native of Greenville, Pa., has an extensive career in recording and performing traditional and modern pieces. He has recorded eight solo projects and travels throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific, bringing his talents as a piano soloist and chamber musician to all parts of the world.
