Saturday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m., at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields (487 Hudson Street), the New York Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), an International Music Fraternity, will present its Annual Benefit Concert featuring internationally acclaimed pianist Dr. Emily White. The program for the event includes works by Beethoven, Szymanowski, Chávez, and more.
Emily White, a member of the New York Alumnae Chapter, is an active soloist and teacher.

She has been hailed by critics as having "awe-inspiring vitality and technical virtuosity . . . [playing that is] brilliantly translucent in every detail . . . dazzlingly illuminated and tingling with excitement" and as a pianist who "performed the pieces with a sensibility and a mastery rarely heard in this country's concert halls." Ms. White's new CD release of Piano Works by Szymanowski on Arabesque Recordings has been highly ranked on Amazon and recently aired on Strasbourg radio's ACCENT 4 to a listening audience of nearly 100,000.
