2012 Gala Concert at Severance Hall
In addition to the work-intensive day, activities will include picnics and recreational activities, as well as field trips to Porthouse Theatre and Blossom Music Center.
Classes, lessons and monitored practice sessions will take place in Kent State's Hugh A. Glauser School of Music, Ludwig Recital Hall and Cartwright Auditorium. The school offers a wide variety of bachelor's and master's degree programs in performance, conducting, music education, composition, ethnomusicology, musicology, and theory as well as three doctoral programs in music education, musicology-ethnomusicology, and theory-composition.
The Piano Institute at Kent State is proud to include the privilege of a gala concert at Severance Hall's Reinberger Chamber Hall in Cleveland. Built in 1931, Severance Hall is the home of the Cleveland Orchestra and has been hailed among the world's most beautiful concert halls for more than half a century.
Piano Institute participants will also have the unique opportunity to share in Kent/Blossom Music. Kent/Blossom Music is known internationally as one of the premiere summer institutions for summer collegiate level study of solo, chamber and orchestral literature.
