Immel is an assistant professor of music at Tech and teaches applied piano and music history. His career has led to solo and collaborative appearances in Canada, Europe and throughout the United States. He was a finalist in the 2008 Vienna International Music Competition and a second prize winner in the 2007 New York Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition. His recent collaboration with saxophonist Todd Oxford for Oxford’s second studio album, “Tango Magnetism,” is garnering rave reviews from critics.

Immel also collaborated with the renowned Cypress String Quartet as part of LTCA’s 2009-10 concert season and is preparing for a solo recital at the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest in July.
