Tom Hill ’67 Embodies Lifelong Learning Through Piano Recital

To do so, he had to rent a concert hall, enlist a piano professor and spend two years practicing.

Hill, a 67-year-old lawyer, played seven classical pieces on Saturday at the McCoy Community Center for the Arts in New Albany for scores of friends and relatives invited to his “second senior recital.”

The first one took place 46 years ago at Grinnell College in Iowa.

“I wasn’t a piano major, but I was a fan of classical music, and I played not particularly well but ... as best I could.”
