Rarely appearing in southern Utah, Navajo Pianist Connor Chee will perform three full length solo recitals of classical works for piano as well as original compositions and transcriptions based on traditional Navajo chants from his recent recording, The Navajo Piano, plus new works expressing the Navajo Creation Story from his just released CD titled, Emergence.

At age 12, Connor Chee won gold in the World Piano Competition’s Young Artist Division, earning his first performance at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, then winning multiple awards in the World Piano Competition. Chee received his Bachelor of Music from Eastman in 2009, and a master’s degree from the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music. He was awarded First Prize in the 2016 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition, and performed in the winners’ recital at Carnegie Hall, also receiving “Best Instrumental Recording” at the 16th Annual Native American Music Awards for his album The Navajo Piano, nominated for “Best New Artist” and “Record of the Year.”

Residing in Phoenix, Arizona, Connor Chee is a voting member of The Recording Academy (the GRAMMY® Awards), and performs throughout the United States.

Augmenting the Native American cultural experience of Connor Chee’s music, members of the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians will speak about the Southern Paiute People who have lived in the region from time immemorial, and will present an interactive cultural circle dance, also known as a friendship dance, that encourages audience participation. Most Native American Tribal cultures have a round dance to welcome everyone in a social expression of kinship, joy, happiness, gratitude, friendship, togetherness, goodwill and harmony.

Southern Utah’s nonprofit Amazing Earthfest, established 2007 in Kanab, UT, enhances public understanding and appreciation for Native cultures and our magnificent natural heritage, the Public Lands of the American West.
