CIM Student Performances at the Kennedy Center
In April, CIM students performed as part of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Conservatory Project in Washington D.C. for the ninth consecutive year.
CIM representatives on the Millennium Stage include violinist and pianist Mason Yu (Joel Smirnoff and Ivan Zenaty), guitarist Chaconne Klaverenga (Jason Vieaux) and a piano trio featuring cellist Hyug Rai Kim (Stephen Geber), violinist Suliman Tekalli (Joel Smirnoff) and pianist Pin-Hsuan Huang (Anita Pontremoli).
“This is a wonderful platform for our students to represent all that is good about CIM as they showcase their talents and represent our students and faculty,” said Conservatory Dean Adrian Daly.
The Conservatory Project began in 2004 as part of the Kennedy Center’s Performing Arts for Everyone initiative and aims to develop young talent from the nation’s leading conservatories. Washington audiences are introduced to young performers with extraordinary talent in classical instrumentation, vocals, jazz, musical theater and opera – the next generation of professional musicians.
This performance, as well as performances from previous years, are archived on the CIM page on Kennedy Center’s website for viewing.
