MusicWise: Facebook Live Event

MusicWise: Facebook Live Event

Tuesday, August 11, 2020 - 1PM

Join us on August 11 for our MUSICWISE Series when your Las Vegas Philharmonic presents a Facebook live broadcast with Music Director Donato Cabrera and special guest, Charlie Albright.

American pianist/composer/improviser Charlie Albright breaks the “classical” rules of music by connecting with audiences like no other. Through his music, speaking, and unique improvisations that bring music to life, he crosses all genres…and makes it fun.

A recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and Gilmore Young Artist Award, Albright won the Ruhr Klavier Festival Young Artist Award presented by Marc-André Hamelin (Germany) and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.  He regularly appears at major concert halls, festivals, and with artists of all genres worldwide.

A firm believer in education, Albright founded the Charlie Albright Scholarship and Charlie Albright Piano in collaboration with the Centralia College Foundation in his hometown. The Scholarship provides financial aid to music students, and money was raised to purchase and maintain a new 9-foot Steinway Piano for the college’s Corbet Hall.
