Mr. Cockrell, well known in the Capital District for 45 years during his faculty
years at UAlbany and at countless area performances in solo, chamber music,
accompaniment, and concerto-with-orchestra repertoire, including several
locations of Noon concerts, came to the Capital District in 1966 from his years
in NYC at Juilliard. Before that he was a student at Harvard, and before that
had a full music life as a young person in california's Bay Area, where his father
taught at UCBerkeley and his mother was an active pianist-about-town. He
performs in Barbados, Russia, as well as his two homes (Albany and CA), and
is busy with the production of CDs during his retirement
