MUSIC AT THE CARMEL VALLEY LIBRARY IN JUNE 2015
PIANIST ANDREW VU AT THE CARMEL VALLEY LIBRARY ON JUNE 10
June's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, June 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library's community room. It will feature pianist Andrew Vu performing pieces by Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff. The program will last 45 minutes.
Andrew Vu, a native of San Diego, began his formal piano lessons at the age of 4, although his interest in music was discovered much earlier as his innate desire to listen to classical music at home became an integral part of his early childhood. His achievements include numerous prestigious scholarship and piano competition awards. He performed at Carnegie Hall as the winner of the 2014 American Protege International Competition of Romantic Music, and with the Greater San Diego Chamber Orchestra as the winner of the 2015 MTAC San Diego Concerto Competition. And last fall he performed as guest artist in violinist Hoang Cong Luan's Autumn Concert at the Joan B Kroc Theater. Andrew welcomes opportunities to perform solo and collaborative concerts at school events, nursing homes, community events, and libraries throughout California. He is also the principal accompanist for the Youth Choir at St. Therese of Carmel Church and the Carmel Valley Middle School Jazz Band. Andrew will be featured in the 2016 Best and Brightest Showcase of San Diego Young Musicians as the winner of the 2015 San Diego Symphony Hot Shots Young Artists Concerto Competition. He currently studies with Mr. Viktor Shekhtman, a graduate of Odessa State Conservatory of Music.
The Library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668.
