2010 Gilmore Artist, and PT's Artists-in-Residence
Two special introductions: the winner of the 2010 Gilmore Artist Award, and PT's Artists-in-Residence. Once every four years, the Gilmore Keyboard Festival names their "Gilmore Artist." The winner gets $300,000 and bookings in major concert halls around the world. Performance Today has the exclusive broadcast announcement of the 2010 Gilmore Artist Award, and host Fred Child talks with the winner. Also: we'll introduce the Parker Quartet as Performance Today Artists-in-Residence. They'll join Fred in the studio to play Mendelssohn's Quartet No. 2. And we'll begin PT's nationwide string quartet competition for high school and college age string quartets.
