‘Tri-C Classical Piano Series’ Makes Grand Return to the Cleveland Museum of Art
Free recital featuring pianist Brian Wallick to take place March 27
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) announced today that its Classical Piano Series will return to the Cleveland Museum of Art later this month, kicking off with pianist Bryan Wallick.
The free performance begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 27, in the Cleveland Museum of Art's Gartner Auditorium (11150 East Blvd.) in University Circle. Seating is on a first-come basis.
"After canceling in 2020 and going virtual the year after, we are thrilled to be back in person at the CMA," said Emanuela Friscioni, director of Tri-C's Classical Piano Series. "Bryan is a highly talented performing artist who projects his music with individuality — the perfect way to open our series."
Wallick is gaining recognition as one of the great American virtuoso pianists of his generation. Gold medalist of the 1997 Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev, he has performed throughout the United States, Europe and Africa.
In 1998, Wallick made his New York recital debut at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall. Since his London debut at Wigmore Hall in 2003, he has performed at Queen Elizabeth Hall with the London Sinfonietta and at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church with the London Soloists Chamber Orchestra.
In recent seasons, Wallick has performed with the Arizona Musicfest All-Star Orchestra, Boise Philharmonic, Brevard Symphony, Cape Town Philharmonic, Johannesburg Philharmonic and the Cincinnati Pops.
Wallick studied with Jerome Lowenthal in New York City, where he was the first Juilliard School graduate to receive both an undergraduate honors diploma (2000) and an accelerated master's degree (2001). He currently serves as assistant professor of piano at Colorado State University.
Wallick's performance is the first of two Classical Piano Series presentations in Tri-C's 2021-2022 Performing Arts season. The series celebrates its 15th year of introducing emerging and established pianists from all over the world to the Greater Cleveland community.
