Alumnus to perform annual Gremley concert

Pianist Duncan Cumming ’93 performs the third annual Florence Pennell Gremley Concert at 3 p.m. Feb. 11 in the Olin Arts Center Concert Hall. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Cumming, a Maine native who drew packed houses as a student pianist at Bates just three years ago, will play works by Mozart, Chopin, Brahms, Debussy and Satie. A reception in the lobby will immediately follow the concert.

A member of the music faculty at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., Cumming is enrolled in the graduate program at New England Conservatory in Boston, where he expects to receive a master’s degree this year.

The program is made possible by the Florence Pennell Gremley Endowment Fund, given by Florence Pennell Gremley ’25 in memory of her parents, Walter J. Pennell, M.D., and Lelia Goff Pennell, members of the Bates classes of 1890 and 1893 respectively.
