RICHARD GLAZIER

Glazier earned his Bachelor and Master degrees in Piano Performance from Indiana University School of Music and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Music. In 2007, CIM awarded him its prestigious Alumni Achievement Award for his contributions to American Popular Song. He has also won several major international piano Competitions including the National Federation of Music Clubs Young Artist Competition and the Pro Musicis International Award.

Glazier’s passion for the rich cultural heritage of early 20th century American music has led him to create special programs celebrating both eras. He performs, telling the history behind the songs, sharing fascinating stories about the composers, the shows, the films and the stars. His programs often include vintage images and rare film clips. He has performed in almost every state and has been a soloist with Pops orchestras across the country. Glazier was most recently invited by the Gershwin family to tour across the country in “Rhapsody and Rhythm: The Gershwin Concert Experience.” Glazier has had three nationally broadcast television specials on PBS. The shows have won multiple awards, including four Telly Awards for Outstanding Achievement in entertainment, documentary and cultural programming. He has been featured on the PBS NewsHour and records exclusively for Centaur Records. Richard Glazier is a Steinway Artist.
