Mississippian and renowned concert pianist Bruce Levingston sits down for an interview with Marshall Ramsey on a new episode of “Conversations” airing December 11 at 7:30 p.m. on MPB TV.
Aside from being a world-class pianist and composer, Levingston also has a deep appreciation for other fine arts, especially Mississippi artists like painter Marie Hull. Levingston is the guest curator of a major exhibition of Hull’s works at the Mississippi Museum of Art. He also wrote a book chronicling the life and work of Marie Hull, titled Bright Fields: The Mastery of Marie Hull.
In this episode of “Conversations,” Levingston talks about growing up in Mississippi, the road to stardom as a gifted musician, the Hull exhibit and his appreciation of the Summit native’s profound visual artistry.
