NTCC Kicks Off Its 2022 Events Calendar On Sunday

Dr. Ron Clinton

The Whatley Center for the Performing Arts at Northeast Texas Community College is pleased to announce that it will kick off its 2022 events calendar on Sunday, February 13, at 2:30 pm with a piano concert by NTCC President Dr. Ron Clinton. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for ages 17-and-under. Virtual live-streaming tickets are also available for $10. All proceeds from the concert will directly benefit the NTCC Eagle Food Pantry, which provides much-needed food and other services to NTCC students. 

“Dr. Clinton is a phenomenally talented pianist, and it is really a treat to get to watch him perform. I hope everyone will join us, either in person or online, to enjoy the concert and support an excellent cause,” Carolyn Franks, Director of the Whatley Center, said. 

Clinton joined the NTCC faculty when the college opened in 1985, teaching music, humanities, and philosophy before joining the administrative team. He was named President of NTCC in 2017. Before his time at NTCC, Clinton performed extensively throughout the United States, Asia, and South America as a concert pianist, appearing as guest soloist with symphony orchestras in Houston, Austin, Lubbock, South America, and the Republic of South Korea.

He received his Doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin in Piano Performance. He studied with William Race and performed in masterclasses with such notable artists as Augustin Anievas, Claude Frank, Anton Kuerti, and Leon Fleisher.

In addition to his work at NTCC, Dr. Clinton has also served as an “artist in residence” at Mokwon University in Taejon, South Korea. He has been a faculty member at the Conservatory of Music at the University of Southern Chile in Valdivia, Chile. He taught piano, served as guest conductor of the Conservatory Orchestra Austral de Chile, and performed concerts. That included performances at the prestigious International Frutillar Music Festival in southern Chile. His solo and chamber music performances have been recorded and broadcast over PBS stations throughout the United States.
