Texas Wesleyan University’s Department of Music invites the Fort Worth community to a special “welcome” concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, in Nicholas Martin Hall.
The concert will feature Vadym Kholodenko, internationally-acclaimed pianist and winner of the 2013 Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
Tickets to the concert are $15 for the general public and $5 for Texas Wesleyan students with their student ID. Tickets are available for purchase online in advance, or at the door.
The concert will officially welcome the university’s new Hamburg Steinway Grand Piano to its new home in Martin Hall, and will be the first time a Cliburn gold medalist will have performed on the campus.
“Having a performer of Kholodenko’s high caliber and international status play on this fine instrument in Martin Hall is an historical event for our department and for our university,” Jerry Bierschenk, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Music, said in a news release.
The piano was chosen by Kholodenko himself to be featured at the 2017 Cliburn competition, and was selected by 23 out of the 30 competitors.
Kholodenko’s program will include works by Mozart, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. There will be a reception in the Baker Building following the concert.
