The 2011 Piano Institute will present a series of concerts
and master classes at various campus locations.

The 2011 Piano Institute, in association with the Piano Division of the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music at Kent State University, will present a series of concerts and master classes from July 17-27 at various campus locations. The six-year-old program is a highly intensive festival for talented piano students in grades 7 – 12. The July 26 gala concert at Severance Hall’s Reinberger Chamber Hall in Cleveland will feature 11 highly gifted pre-collegiate pianists from around the world.

Instructors of the Piano Institute include Dr. Donna Lee, associate professor and coordinator of the Piano Division at Kent State, and Dr. Jerry Wong, associate professor of piano at Kent State. This year’s guest artists are Joela Jones, principal keyboardist with the Cleveland Orchestra and Spencer Myer, international concert pianist.

Piano Institute participants receive four hours of one-on-one lessons daily; attend master classes; and study sight-reading, technique, practicing and audition/competition preparation. They also will have the unique opportunity to share in the Kent/Blossom Music program, a premiere summer institution for summer collegiate-level study of solo, chamber and orchestral literature.

All concerts and master classes are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. For more information, please call 330-672-1061 or visit www.dept.kent.edu/music.
