Toradze Piano Studio set for two October performances

toradzeThe world-renowned Toradze Piano Studio will perform twice in the month of October.

The first performance will be at 7:30 pm on Friday, October 4, in the newly renovated Education and Arts Building in the Lecture Hall on the northeast corner of the building. This space provides an intimate setting for the concert, keeping the audience within six rows of the performers.

This concert will feature new studio members Faith Gioja and Ilia Uliantsky in their South Bend debut, as well as returning members of the studio. The performance will include Siwon Kim and Ketevan Kartvelishvili performing works by Franz Listzt, and Natasha Stojanovska presenting Chopin. Gioja will present a work by Liszt as well as a composition by Robert Muczynski and Uliantsky will perform a piece by Ludwig Van Beethoven.

The studio’s second October performance will be at 4 pm on Sunday, October 27, in the Campus Auditorium located in Northside Hall.

The Toradze Piano Studio was established in 1991 at IU South Bend and soon began touring as a piano ensemble—the first of its kind in the United States.

The studio is led by Martin Endowed Professor in Piano Alexander Toradze. Toradze's idea of the "touring conservatory studio" is rooted in Russian and European educational practice—and is filled as much with tradition as emotion.

Tickets for the Toradze Piano Studio are available for $7-$10 in advance and $9-$12 at the door. Students and children receive one free ticket with a valid student ID. For tickets or more information please visit or call the box office at 574.520.4203.
