The Washington Conservatory of Music announced that it is featuring a free piano class with pianist Angela Hewitt.
“On Saturday, February 9, at 12 noon, Washington Conservatory of Music will present a free master class with internationally acclaimed pianist Angela Hewitt at Westmoreland Congregational UCC Church, One Westmoreland Circle at Massachusetts and Western Avenues, the boundary of DC and Bethesda,” the conservatory announced.
The event is being offered by the Washington Conservatory of Music in cooperation with the Washington Performing Arts Society. The class is open to the public.
According to the announcement, “performing for Ms. Hewitt at the master class are Kristina Rudenko, a recent graduate of Oberlin Conservatory where she was a student of Lydia Frumkin; Matthew Griswold, an Artist Certificate student with Enrique Graf at the College of Charleston; and Kevin Kaukl, currently in the doctoral program at Shenandoah University as a student of John O’Conor. Griswold is a former student at the Washington Conservatory of Music.”
Ms. Hewitt, organizers say, has been called “one of the reliably mesmerizing musicians of the day” (The Times, London ) and “the pre-eminent Bach pianist of our time” (The Guardian). She has performed in prestigious venues throughout the world. Highlights of recent seasons include her debuts in Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw, and with the Cleveland Orchestra. Named Gramophone Artist of the Year in 2006, Ms. Hewitt’s extensive discography includes all the keyboard works of Bach, Beethoven piano sonatas, Mozart piano concertos, the complete Chopin Nocturnes and Impromptus, and many other recordings.”
The Washington Conservatory of Music is a nationally accredited community music school, serving students of all ages and levels since 1984, with locations in Glen Echo Park and Bethesda , MD.
The master class is supported in part by the Bruce and Lori Rosenblum Fund.
