The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) and Musical Arts Society of New Orleans (MASNO) invite amateur pianists to apply for the second annual Festival PiaNOLA Community Master Class Auditions, taking place on Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 at Dixon Recital Hall on Tulane University’s campus. The audition is open to pianists age 16 and older.
Three pianists will be selected to have the opportunity to participate in a master class taught by Festival PiaNOLA Guest Artist and 2016 New Orleans International Piano Competition Gold Medalist Xiaohui Yang while performing on the LPO’s new Steinway Concert Grand in the Orpheum Theater.
Each winner will also receive two tickets to the LPO’s Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 concert featuring a performance of Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini by Ms. Yang. The three winners of the audition will be determined by a panel of judges selected by the LPO and MASNO.
The masterclass will take place on Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 at the Orpheum Theater beginning at 7:00 PM. The masterclass is free and open to the public.
