Fun, Friendships, and Music at International Music Summit

The first big event of our 2012-2013 20 Years Young Season is about to start.  Charlie Liu arrived this afternoon from New Jersey with his brother and dad, and Kate Lee and her mom arrived from Hong Kong yesterday. By tomorrow six Lang Lang Scholars will have made their way to Chicago for a week of educational workshops and coaching sessions and their orchestral debuts with MYA's Symphony Orchestra next Sunday, August 19, on the Pritzker Stage of Millenium Park.  The performance is at 6:30 p.m. (after the Air & Water Show) and will feature the Grieg and Chopin Piano Concertos and Dvorak Carnival Overture.

Six MYA families and music enthusiasts have opened their homes to these young students, all hand picked by international piano superstar, Lang Lang.  Symphony Orchestra members will start rehearsals on Monday evening, and MYA Chamber Music students will rehearse each afternoon, also getting ready for a chamber music recital at the MYA Center, next Saturday, August 18, at 3 p.m.  

Tonight, MYA Alum and Jazz Pianist, Adam Kromelow, will treat the classically trained young pianists to a jazz piano recital at 7 p.m., our first Music at the Fort recital of the season.
