Sara Davis Buechner, one of the most vital concert pianists of our time, will present “Changing Keys,” a concert at the Sunshine Cathedral Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 21.

The show is kicking off the newest series from the Generation Venetian Arts Society (GENVAS), “From South Florida with Love!”, inspired by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was composed by a global delegation following the end of World War II. The document enshrines the rights and freedoms of all human beings and all the programming in this series will use the arts to send powerful messages of love, hope, acceptance, and dignity.

Buechner has been a soloist with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, among others. The New York Times wrote, “Ms. Buechner combines intelligence, integrity, and an all-encompassing technical prowess!”

This award-winning performer was the featured pianist for the 2000 gala concerts in Washington, D.C. benefiting the National Symphony Orchestra and she made her recital debut at Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival. Buechner is a champion of young American composers and has given premieres of solo, concerto, and film-interactive works by Larry Bell, Pierre Charvet, Richard Danielpour, Dick Hyman, Kenneth Lampl, Henry Martin, and Paul Moravec. She recently performed both the Boston and NY premieres of Larry Bell's hour-long cycle of Prelude and Fugues. She appears regularly with the Film Society of Lincoln Center as one of the few pianists to actively play piano scores in silent movies, notably the 150-minute-long restored version of Ben-Hur (1925) and the Danish classic Master of the House (1925).

Buechner received her undergraduate degree from The Juilliard School and received her doctorate in music from The Manhattan School of Music. She was a former faculty member at the Manhattan School of Music in NYC and New York University. In 2003 she was appointed Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She has also presented lectures and masterclasses worldwide, including at the Boston and Peabody Conservatories, Indiana and Northwestern Universities, the Juilliard School of Music in New York, Kobe-Yamate Gakuin in Osaka, Japan, the Shandelee Festival, the Royal Academy in London, and throughout Japan and Korea.

Profiles of Sara Davis Buechner have appeared in such varied publications as The New York Times Magazine, Paris Match, Noticias del Argentina, Out, Blade, and Frontiers magazines; and she has been featured on the television programs Entertainment Tonight, Extra, and In the Life. Her appearances on radio include profiles on NPR's The Fishko Files and Performance Today, WFMT's Dame Myra Hess Recital Series, and WNYC's New Sounds with John Schaefer.

General admission tickets are $35 and VIP tickets are $55 and include a post-concert wine and dessert reception with the artist. Tickets are available at
