This month, CCM presents an exclusive opportunity for gifted young pianists to work with some of the world’s most sought-after teachers. Art of the Piano starts its festivities on June 18 and runs through June 30, 2012. Taking place in CCM’s Robert J. Werner Recital Hall, students will enjoy daily master classes, take part in student recitals and have the opportunity to see luminaries such as Ann Schein, Awadagin Pratt, Tamás Vásáry, Wonmi Kim and Robert Weirich in performance.

Tickets to the Pratt and Vásáry’s performance on Wednesday, June 20 are $12 for general admission, $11 UC faculty and staff members and $5 for students with valid ID. All other recitals are free and open to the public (see a complete schedule below).

In addition to Schein, Pratt, Vásáry, Kim and Weirich, students will work with such renowned pianists as Myong Joo Lee, Nelita True and Frederic Chiu. Bengals Offensive Line Coach Paul Alexander will also give a talk on maximizing performance potential. The public is invited to participate in these master classes and full session, day and single session passes may be purchased.
