Celebrate Chopin with Brian Ganz at Barton Oaks: Feb. 18 | 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Brighten your mid-February this year by enjoying a wonderful concert, “Chopin the Traveler, Chopin the Teacher,” performed by acclaimed pianist Brian Ganz on behalf of the Community Music School of the Piedmont. Featuring the works of the great 19th century composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin, the fundraising event on Sunday, Feb. 18, is their 11th Annual Candlelight Concert. Once again, thanks to their gracious host Claude Schoch, it will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the beautiful ballroom at Barton Oaks in The Plains, Virginia.

A gifted teacher and virtuoso pianist himself, Brian Ganz is one of the foremost interpreters of Chopin and is widely regarded as one of the leading performers of his generation. The Washington Post has noted his mastery and sheer pleasure in the music: “There isn’t much about Chopin that Brian Ganz doesn’t know … his delight and wonder in this music seems to grow, apparently without bounds.” Mr. Ganz is on the piano faculty of St. Mary’s College of Maryland, where he is artist-in-residence, and is also a member of the piano faculty of the Peabody Conservatory.

CMSP’s Candlelight Concert series was established to provide world-class music to our community and to raise critically needed scholarships and outreach funds for the Community Music School of the Piedmont. They reach and enrich the lives of over 400 children and adults in our community with music instruction and ensemble opportunities.
