E.B. Storrs Scholars Roundtable: Young Musicians during a Pandemic (2020 Recipients: Part 2)

Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 10:00am
Virtual Program
David Schonfeld

On this program, we will get to hear from a number of 2020 Storrs Scholarship recipients, all of whom were enrolled in Connecticut university programs at the time they applied. In normal times, we would have heard some of these pianists in a live recital this past March. Instead, we will at least get to chat with them, find out more about their current situation and career plans, and hear samples of their pianism.

The scholars will be joining us from their homes around the world, where they are living and working during the pandemic. For a pre-registration invitation, please send us a note, using the Contact link on the main menu.

Scholarship recipients planning to participate in today's roundtable include: Salome Jordania, Morgan Lee, Anthony Ratinov, Christine Wu, and Sofia DiNatale. A different cadre of pianists appeared on March 18; we will hear from the remainder today. If you would like to familiarize yourself with these brilliant young musicians prior to April 22, we recommend the following online video links:
