Nathan Shirley

Nathan Shirley will perform his original compositions including “Images,” a set of 10 pieces inspired by paintings from the Renaissance. These paintings will be projected during the performance. A composer and pianist, since age 21 Mr. Shirley has received half a dozen national and international awards for his solo, chamber and orchestral compositions. He is primarily self-taught, but as a teenager was mentored in composition by Olga Harris, the last student of Aram Khachaturian. Mr. Shirley’s music has been performed in over a dozen countries around the world. He is the president of the Asheville Area Piano Forum and lives in Western North Carolina with his wife and children.
