Music at Acton hosting pianists

Music at Acton presents three pianists in concert Saturday night, Feb. 9 at 7 in downtown Granbury at the Langdon Center Concert Hall, corner of Bridge and Brazos Streets.

The three young classical pianists – two from Russia, one from Poland – have been invited to audition for the international Cliburn Piano competition held in Fort Worth this spring. All are students of renown TCU professor, Dr. Tamas Ungar,

The Cliburn Piano Competition is one of the premier piano competitions in the world. Held every four years it has launched many a talented young pianist on the road to a successful professional career. The contest is named for Van Cliburn, iconic Fort Worth musician and arts supporter, and the first American to win the venerable Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow during the Cold War in the 1950s.

Auditions for the 2013 Cliburn will be held in Fort Worth later in February.

The concert In Granbury will give these three young pianists a chance to play for an audience before their audition. And it will give Lake Granbury area residents an opportunity to say “we heard them when…”

A free will offering will be accepted at the door.

With limited seating at the Langdon Center Concert Hall, guests are advised to arrive early.
