SUNY Potsdam President Quizzed on Radio for Piano Puzzler


SUNY Potsdam President Dr. John F. Schwaller will be featured on American Public Media’s “Performance Today” program on Wednesday, May 23, in its “Piano Puzzler” segment.

The nationally syndicated program hosted by Fred Child is the most-listened-to classical music radio show in America.

Dr. Schwaller was chosen as a contestant for the “Piano Puzzler” segment, which challenges listeners to figure out what tune pianist Bruce Adolphe is playing, and in the style of which composer.

Local audiences can hear the segment during tomorrow’s show, which airs from 9 to 11 p.m. on North Country Public Radio from Monday to Thursday each week.
