2017 American Pianists Awards finalist Steven Lin will perform on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 3 p.m. in the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation Concourse at Eskenazi Health. The concert is free and open to the public.
Lin earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree at the famed Juilliard School and recently completed his curriculum at the Curtis Institute of Music, under the guidance of Robert McDonald. The American Pianists Awards are held every four years to discover the best aspiring young American classical pianists.
Lin has been applauded by the New York Times for playing that is “...immaculately voiced and enhanced by admirable subtleties of shading and dynamics.”
Lin's broad musical interests allow him to move with ease between concertos, recitals and chamber music, enjoying appearances world-wide at important venues including the Louvre and Salle Cortot in France, National Dublin Hall in Ireland, Seoul Arts Center in Korea, Sendai Cultural Center in Japan and Avery Fisher Hall in the United States.
He was the winner of the 2012 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition and the John Giordano Jury Chairman Discretionary Award at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. In May 2014, his dynamic playing at Israel’s Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition was recognized when he was awarded the Silver Medal as well as numerous performance prize engagements in Israel and internationally.
This free concert is part of the Marianne Tobias Music Program at Eskenazi Health, which brings music to the patients, visitors and staff at Eskenazi Health. Tobias helped to establish the program, including donating a concert grand piano that resides in the main concourse of the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital.
