We are honored to have internationally acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein grace our stage. She will perform the world premiere of "Sanctuary," plus works by Satie, Glass, and Schubert.
Ms. Dinnerstein gained an international following with the remarkable success of her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which ranked No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Classical Chart in its first week of sales and was a The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and New Yorker “Best of 2007.” Her latest album, “Mozart in Havana,” reached number two on the Billboard Classical chart.
Ms. Dinnerstein has performed at international venues including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Vienna Konzerthaus, Berlin Philharmonie, Sydney Opera House, Seoul Arts Center, and London’s Wigmore Hall; at festivals including the Lincoln Center Mostly Mozart Festival and the Aspen, Verbier, and Ravinia festivals; and with the preeminent orchestras of the world.
She has performed for the Piatigorsky Foundation, bringing
classical music to non-traditional venues. She gave the first classical music performance in the Louisiana state prison system, and performed at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women. Ms. Dinnerstein founded Neighborhood Classics, a concert series raising funds for music education in the New York public schools.
Ms. Dinnerstein is a graduate of The Juilliard School, where she was a student of Peter Serkin. She also studied with Solomon Mikowsky at the Manhattan School of Music and in London with Maria Curcio. She is on the faculty of the Mannes School of Music and is a Sony Classical artist.
