For the Left Hand

Galvin Recital Hall

Join the Bienen piano studio for a screening of the documentary For the Left Hand. Inspired by a story written by Bienen alumnus Howard Reich ('77) for the Chicago Tribune, the film delves into the experience of pianist Norman Malone, who made his debut as an orchestral soloist at the age of 79, following a traumatic injury to his right hand. Following the screening, Howard Reich will lead a Q&A.
