Speaking of Park Slopers, we’ve been hearing a lot about pianist SIMONE DINNERSTEIN lately. The Juillard grad (who was born in the Slope and still lives there) had her Carnegie Hall Weill recital debut last year. In September, a New York Times article, “Looking Towards Greatness (And, Perhaps, Their 30’s), counted Dinnerstein as one of five musicians “poised for a breakthrough.”

Her only New York recital this season is Nov. 19 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as part of the Museum’s “Accolades for Pianists” concert series. Call (212) 570 3949 for details.
