After the passing of Henry J. Goodman, his widow Lois Goodman, requested that donations be made to Cleveland State for Keyboard Conversations. Henry Goodman was fundamental in bringing the series to the University. Keyboard Conversations is a series of concerts combined with commentary and dynamic performances of piano masterpieces. Listeners discover an entertaining and instantly accessible introduction to the vast repertoire of the piano and classical music.

Born into a musical family, Jeffrey Siegel studied with Rudolf Ganz in his native Chicago, with the legendary Rosina Lhévinne at The Juilliard School and, as a Fulbright Scholar, with Ilona Kabos. Siegel has performed with some of the world's great orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, New York Philharmonic and Cleveland Orchestra. He and his wife live in New York and have two grown children and three grandchildren.
