GREENWICH, Conn. -- The top four winners of the first annual Rondo Young Artist Festival, an international concert showcase for 5 to 18-year-old musicians, will perform and record at the Greenwich Arts Center on Sunday, May 5 at 1 p.m.
The recital, entitled “Rondo Tour Special Presentation,” will feature three pianists and a cellist individually performing and recording works by Bach, Barber, Liszt, Schumann, and others.
The talented and accomplished youngsters, who recently debuted with other Rondo winners at Carnegie Hall, are pianists Yali Levy Schwartz, Kyrie McIntosh, Marika Mori and cellist Callum Nissen.
McIntosh, a 12-year-old student at the Special Music School, is an active performer and composer whose work has aired on WQXR and appeared on CD.
Fifteen-year-old Marika, a student at New Providence High School, in New Jersey, and Mannes Preparatory, is an experienced music-festival participant. Callum, a 13-year-old who attends The Anderson School and the Lucy Moses School, has impressed audiences with both solo and ensemble performances.
The recital is part of a concert series that kicked off with the debut recital at Carnegie Hall, in March, continued with performances at the Liederkranz Foundation, in April and will culminate with a U.S. tour, in 2014.
Tickets for the May 5 recital are available for $25 by e-mail reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org and at the Greenwich Arts Center at 299 Greenwich Avenue on the day of the event.
