Eda Jameson will perform a free concert of piano solos at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 30, at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2000 Oakwood Dr., Medford.

The concert will feature "Sonata in G Major," K283, by Mozart; "Sonata No. 13," by Beethoven; "Danzas argentinas," by Ginastera; and "Nocturne, Op. 27, No. 2," and "Fantaisie, Op. 49," by Chopin.

Jameson began her study of piano at the age of five. At 13, she performed the Grieg A minor concerto with orchestra.

She holds bachelor's and master's degrees in music and composition — with honors — from UCLA, a place she would be asked to teach. For her master's dissertation, she wrote a piece for piano and string orchestra.

She persued further study with F. Motte-Lacroiz of the Paris Conservatory, Denise Lassimone of the London Matthay School and the Italian pianist Benedetti Michelangeli.

Jameson has performed throughout the United States, England, Europe, Australia, Mexico and Chile.

She has often appeared on television and radio, performing with various symphony orchestras and making several recordings.

She was a member of the faculty at Yuba College in Northern California. She is a member of several academic and musical fraternal organizations.

Last year she performed at a number of retirement homes. And for 18 consecutive years she presented the September Music Festival in Medford with invited musical guests. She was founder and artistic director of the festival.

For many years she served on the board of Chamber Music Concerts of Southern Oregon University.

For the past 26 years, Jameson has traveled east to perform. Last month, she played in Colorado Springs, Colo. The Nov. 30 concert in Medford will be her fourth appearance since recovering from a broken right hand. She is grateful to be playing again.

Donations will be accepted for the church building fund.
