Enjoy a delightful evening of contemporary and classical piano music
performed by the world-famous musician and Niles native Doug
Montgomery at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 2, at Oakton’s
Footlik Theater, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines.
The talented Michael Feinstein has said about Montgomery, “He is a
gifted musician who is equally at home performing Chopin or singing
show tunes. The wondrous part is that he does both with great style,
verve, and talent.”
For more than three decades, the Julliard-trained pianist has
performed across the globe. During Montgomery’s career as a solo
performer, he has appeared with prestigious musical organizations
including the Orchestra of Santa Fe, the New Jersey Symphony, Kansas
City Philharmonic, the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago
Chamber Orchestra, the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra of Chicago, and
the Valley Opera Orchestra of California. In 1989, he performed at
the inauguration of George H.W. Bush.

are $25 and include a post-performance reception. Proceeds support
Oakton’s Student Scholarship Fund.
