Opportunity for Young Instrumentalists to Audition for NY Piano Society

The New York Piano Society (NYPS) is seeking young instrumentalists  - violinists, cellists and flutists – between the ages of 10-18, to audition for future guest performances of Piano Society concerts. Each musician must present two contrasting classical pieces with a minimum duration time of ten minutes. Accomplished amateur pianists of any age who have established careers in other than music fields and college students who are not majoring in music may also audition.

There is a $20 audition fee. Those who are interested may call NYPS at 800.862.4630, x48 for more information, or visit newyorkpianosociety.com or email newyorkpianosociety@gmail.com with a proposed program.

The New Jersey auditions will be held on April 18 at 12 noon, in Hennessy Hall (The Mansion), on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ.

The New York Piano Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 by pianist Elena Leonova. “We provide a nourishing environment for amateur performers through recitals, special events with concert artists, workshops and social events. This is a service that provides opportunities for public performance and guidance if the auditioner is not performance ready.” Leonova is a graduate of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and is currently on the faculty of Mannes College of Music.
