Benny C. Morgan Concert Series: Holly Roadfeldt
Described as wielding a “perfect pairing of technical prowess and innate sensitivity” (American Record Guide), Roadfeldt is one of contemporary music’s most prolific ambassadors, having performed over 150 world premieres by more than four dozen composers. Artistically, she obsesses over ensuring audiences connect to the music they hear, blending virtuosity with insight in her popular lecture-recitals. For her efforts, music critics across the United States, Canada, Italy, U.K., and Spain have taken notice, including Gramophone’s Donald Rosenberg, who praises Holly as “a vivid pianist” with “beautiful playing”.
Roadfeldt’s three-year artistic flagship, “The Preludes Project”, saw her premiere 65 preludes alongside curated works within the standard repertoire in a 17-state tour, where she would refine her alchemy of present and past. Attracting attention across the industry, The Preludes Project CD was subsequently released on PARMA Recordings as Holly’s debut album. Her collaboration with multi-GRAMMY® award-winning producer Andreas Meyer would prove to be the first of many—he also produced Roadfeldt’s recent album Autumn Winds (2020).

Roadfeldt is the Director of Keyboard Studies at Lafayette College. She formerly held the title of Artist Faculty with Distinction at The Music School of Delaware and previously served as faculty at the University of Delaware, Susquehanna University, Muhlenberg College, Gettysburg College, the University of Colorado-Boulder, and Indiana University.

An Ohio native, Holly now makes her home in Easton, Pennsylvania where she lives with her husband, Kirk O’Riordan. To view her full discography, scheduled performances, and other information, visit

The Benny C. Morgan Series is presented by sponsors Johnny Alvey and the CSM Foundation. The series is also supported by the St. Mary’s County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council.
