In this edition of Coastal Classical Music, host George Cady previews the Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music concert of May 15, 2016. This is the annual scholarship program, showcasing the students who have been awarded scholarships by the Friends of Music.
A wide variety of works will be performed by the three winners, Jaron Cannon, Stephanie Chen, and Anthony Bock. In addition, their mentor, Dr. Alexander Tutunov, will perform works by Liszt, Prokofiev, and Beethoven. Dr. Tutunov is a Professor of Music at Southern Oregon University and head of SOU’s Piano Institute. This podcast features performances by all four of the performers.
The Friends of Music performance is free to the public and has been extremely popular in recent seasons. Friends of Music is proud to promote musical education through its scholarship program, and this concert presents an opportunity for the scholarship winners to get real concert experience and show their emerging talents to the public.
