Piano students from here and abroad perform tonight

Thirteen students attending the fifth annual Gold Country Piano Institute will perform tonight at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center in the last of three institute concerts.

For the past two weeks in Nevada City, the pianists have had daily classes in interpretation and performance led by Dr. Pawel Skrzypek, piano department chair at the Frederic Chopin State School of Music in Warsaw, Poland; Lee Kum-Sing, piano department head at the Vancouver Academy of Music and University of British Columbia piano professor in Vancouver; and Emilio del Rosario, a Music Institute of Chicago piano teacher in Winnetka, Ill.

Just like the teachers, the students are from different countries.

Among tonight’s performers are Vancouver siblings Caitlin, 10, and Ian, 12, Wood; Poland’s Aleksandra Bobrowska, 16; Japan’s Kana Okada, 13; England’s Sam Armstrong, 24; and Croatia’s Filip Fak, 20, and Domogoj Guscic, 21. Penn Valley’s Rachel Benoit, 16, will also take the stage.

The free concert begins at 7 p.m. The Foundry is at 325 Spring St., Nevada City.
