Diehn Concert Tonight - Bart van Oort on Forte-Piano
Bart van Oort, a prolific recording artists and recitalist who won both first prize and the special "Audience" prize at the Mozart Fortepiano Competition in Bruges, Belgium in 1986, will perform at 8 p.m. tonight in Chandler Recital Hall as part of the F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series.
