Pianist opens concert series


Pianist Jeffrey LaDeur opens the 25th season of Neskowin Chamber Music with a 3 p.m. concert on Sunday, Oct. 7 at Camp Winema. He last appeared at Neskowin in 2016 as a member of the Delphi Trio.

LaDeur has played all over the U.S. and abroad and is frequently heard on the radio. He is the founder and artistic director of the San Francisco International Piano Festival and the New Piano Collective. He was a founding member of the Delphi Trio, which was a prize winner at the 2015 competition in the Netherlands. He was featured in the 2016 award-winning documentary “California Typewriter.”

LaDeur, who has degrees from the Eastman School of Music and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, is a faculty member of the Crowden School’s summer chamber music workshop. He is also on the faculty of the Young Chamber Musicians. He helped develop a program for emerging musicians to guide them through their first concert experience. Education through music is central to his mission as a performer.
