Art of the Piano Summer Festival May 28 - June 11

The sixth annual Art of the Piano summer festival and concert series will be the “best year yet,” according to Artistic Director and CCM Artist-in-Residence Awadagin Pratt.

Twenty-four student pianists will join 10 internationally acclaimed musicians for a series of master classes and recitals during the Art of the Piano summer festival at CCM.

The students have a unique opportunity to learn from distinguished artists including Vladimir Feltsman, Yoshikau Nagai, Paul Schenly and Boris Slutsky. In addition, six Art of the Piano artist teachers will each perform in a series of concerts throughout the festival.

Each concert is FREE and open to the public; reservations are not required. Student recitals will take place at 7 p.m. in the Cohen Family Studio Theater on May 31, June 1, 3, and 6. The student recitals will feature themed programs of the works of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff and others.
