The “Bazaar Performance” is free and open to the public, reported Maria Ferrand, coordinator of resident life services. Call 438-4000 to reserve a seat.

Roberts served as visiting assistant professor of bassoon at the University of Missouri for the 2013-14 academic year, said Ferrand. Since 2001 she has been principal bassoonist and director of youth education for the Charlottesville Symphony, and she has served on the faculty at the University of Virginia.

Roberts earned a bachelor’s in early childhood education from the University of Illinois, a professional studies diploma and a bachelor’s from the Harid Conservatory, and a master’s from the University of Southern California, where she was elected to Pi Kappa Lambda and USC Presidential Fellows.

Roberts first performed at RW-C in the 1990s when her great aunt, Elizabeth Taylor Knight, became a resident, said Ferand. Her parents recently moved to RWC, and she is pleased to present this recital in their honor.

Keiter has performed throughout the U.S. and in Europe, said Ferrand. She is active as a solo recitalist, collaborative artist and soloist with orchestra. Her latest European appearances include recitals with France’s International Roussel Festival, as well as with the Internationale Academie de Musique in Gargenville, France.

Recently she has appeared as a concerto soloist with orchestras in Indiana, Virginia, and North Carolina, and her latest solo concert engagements have taken her to Wisconsin, Idaho, West Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Illinois, South Carolina, and Virginia. In February 2014, she performed Florence B. Price’s recently-reconstructed Concerto in One Movement with the Waynesboro Symphony.

Frequently in demand as a lecturer, adjudicator and masterclass clinician, she is active in many organizations, including MTNA and College Music Society. She has degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory and Indiana University.
