Bonnie Gritton

Bonnie Gritton is an American classical pianist.

As well as performing in concert, she teaches piano performance and pedagogy at the University of Utah. Dr. Gritton made her debut performance at age 15, when she played Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto, accompanied by the Utah Symphony Orchestra. She has performed in concerts in Europe, Israel, and the U.S. Recent tours have taken her to Greece, Spain and Hawaii.

Dr. Gritton's concert performances are often piano duets with her University of Utah colleague, Professor Susan Duelhmeir. Together they have released a CD of the music of Gershwin on the Centaur label and a recording of the Wolking Jazz Two-Piano Concerto with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.

Gritton received her Master's and the Ph.D. in musicology from the University of California at Los Angeles, studying under Aube Tzerko, Rosina Lhevinne, Igor Kipnis and Lola Odiaga. She also studied the pedagogical and critical works of Friedrich Wieck, who was Robert Schumann's music teacher and father-in-law. Wieck's musical writings formed the subject of Dr. Gritton's Ph.D. dissertation.
