The Judson Korean Scholarship Fundraising Concert and (optional) Dinner will take place on Saturday, May 20, in Herrick Chapel. The concert will feature four piano faculty members from Indiana University and Grinnell College (Iowa), performing Chopin’s piano works. The program will include his major works such as Polonaise-Fantasie in A flat major, Ballade No. 4, Scherzo No. 2, while not neglecting to include his Waltz, Nocturne, Mazurka, and Prelude. You will also have a rare opportunity to listen to Chopin’s Polish songs performed by Dr. Maria Kanyova, internationally acclaimed soprano and guest vocal instructor at Judson, along with Dr. Robert Kania’s brief presentation on Chopin’s life and music.
The Korean Music Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to talented international music students who desire to prepare for entrance into U.S. and study at Judson’s graduate music programs. An optional dinner will follow the concert.
The concert is free for Judson faculty, staff, and students. The optional dinner following the concert will be served in the cafeteria and is $20 per plate, payable at the door.
