Barry Hannigan was recently awarded Emeritus status at Bucknell University, where he retired as the Ellen P. Williams Professor of Music. He made his New York debut in Carnegie Recital Hall in 1984 and has since received rave reviews in major cities across the United States. Hannigan made his European debut at the Edvard Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, and has subsequently performed in Russia, England, China, Ireland, Norway, and New Zealand. He is the recipient of many awards and prizes, including those from the Ford, Belin, Surdna, and Presser Foundations. Hannigan has recorded for Opus One, SEAMUS, Seesaw Music, SCI, and Radio Telefis Eireann in Dublin, and has released four solo CDs for Black Canyon Records.
Mary Hannigan – “Some in the near-capacity audience were moved to tears” is Robert Miner’s description of flutist Mary Hannigan’s playing at a performance on the Simply Grand series at NPR affiliate station WVIA in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. She has recorded for S.C.I. and performed widely across the United States as soloist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician. She is a member of two performing duos: one with her husband Barry and one with harpist Rebecca Kauffman. She has been a member of the Harrisburg Symphony since 1984.
