Boston Court Pasadena continues its mission of fostering new musical talent with the Third Annual Emerging Artists Series, May 30 – June 9, 2019. The series will feature up-and-coming pianists, as well as vocalists who have been through a rigorous mentoring curriculum with some of Los Angeles’ most prominent musicians and coaches including Mark Robson, Gloria Cheng, Lisa Sylvester, Vicki Ray, Brent McMunn and Paul Floyd.
The series is curated by Boston Court Artistic Director Mark Saltzman, and features pianist Kaileigh Riess (soprano), David Castillo (baritone), So-Mang Jeagal (pianist), James Hayden (bass-baritone), David Kaplan (pianist), Alina Roitstein (soprano) and Todd Moellenberg (pianist). The pianists are presented in collaboration with Piano Spheres.
2019 marks the third year that Boston Court Pasadena is presenting the Emerging Artists Series. The Series not only gives audiences the opportunity to hear these talented musicians who are on-the-rise, but it also provides the young musicians with a platform to develop and hone their professional recital repertoire and performance skills. The concert pianists are part of the ongoing Piano Spheres Satellite Series, and are presented with their mentor in a pre-show conversation to give the audience a more in-depth look at the mentoring process, as well as the repertoire that will be heard in the concert that follows.
“The Emerging Artists Series is an exciting addition to our season,” said Boston Court Pasadena Artistic Director Mark Saltzman. “It enables these extraordinarily talented musicians to have the exceptional opportunity to learn from the collective wisdom and experience of some of the most brilliant professionals in the field. The pièce de resistance is the culmination of the learning process in these public performances that present the young artists as they emerge into very promising careers.”
The Emerging Artists Series speaks to a core piece of Boston Court Pasadena’s mission to develop new work and nurture young artists, providing them a platform to grow, experiment, and pursue projects that they are passionate about. The Series is made possible through generous support from the Lazy L Foundation.
