World-renowned pianist Carolyn Enger, who takes periodic southern Vermont breaks from her musical journeys, will bring her talent to the First Universalist Parish of Chester, 211 North St., at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31.

Enger has performed in venues as nationally familiar as Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center, and as far away as the National Gallery of Oslo and the Felicja Blumenthal Center in Tel Aviv. Her 2013 Naxos recording of music by Ned Rorem, Piano Album I, was selected as one of the “Best in Classical Recordings” by The New York Times.

Like much of her recent work, the concert will include visual elements, which she highlights with music. Her Resonating Earth uses music ranging from the Baroque to the present alongside imagery of the environment by Peabody Award-winning producer Elliott Forrest, visual artist Myles Aronowitz, and environmental activist and photographer J. Henry Fair. Snippets can be seen and heard here.

The concert is free and open to the public. A $10 suggested donation will be divided among the church, the Chester-Andover Family Center and the Chester Community Greenhouse & Gardens.
