Marcia Snavely started studying piano at the age of five and accompanying and performing at the age of six. While at Case Western Reserve University she completed chemistry studies as well as a graduate program in classical organ. In other words, she knows music. Her performances at the event were testament to that. Liszt can be a challenge for less-skilled pianists.
