Drawing Room Chamber Series to feature Amanda Roberts on hammered dulcimer


For the Miami Valley Today

TROY — The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center’s Drawing Room Chamber Series will feature Amanda Roberts on hammered dulcimer at 7:30 p.m. on March 29.

Inspired by the music of Rich Mullins, Amanda Roberts purchased her first hammered dulcimer in 2000. Although she was primarily a performing pianist, she fell in love with the delicate intricacies and challenges of this ancient instrument. In 2017, she won the title 2017 National Hammer Dulcimer Champion at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. She has performed at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center many times and will be returning on Tuesday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m.

Scott Freeman will join Roberts on guitar and mandolin. Roberts’ concerts have always filled the ballroom so reservations will be necessary. To receive your free tickets to this show, go to www.TroyHayner.org/music. The series is curated and hosted by Steven Aldredge of Wright State University. Aldredge is a gifted collaborative pianist, as well as a soloist and published composer in his own right.

The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center is located at 301 W. Main Street in Troy. Most concerts, including the Drawing Room Chamber Concert Series are free to the public.
