A Year of Adventures on the High Keys for Conservatory Keyboard Students and Graduates


Back to the main story

  Thomas Rosenkranz '99 was one of five pianists selected as finalists for the 2002-03 Classical Fellowship Awards, sponsored by the American Pianists Association (APA). Rosenkranz will perform both in recital and in concert with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra during "Discovery Week," (April 6-12, 2003), the culmination of the seven-month-long competition. This intense period of performances will also include chamber music performances; Rosenkranz will perform Shostakovich's Piano Quintet in G Minor, Op. 57, with the Pacifica Quartet (two members of the Quartet are Conservatory alumni), Thursday, April 10, at noon in a concert that will be judged and broadcast live on NPR affiliate WFYI (90.1 FM). At the end of "Discovery Week," two of the five pianists will be selected as Fellows of the APA and will receive a cash prize of $20,000 and two years of performances, master classes, and educational outreach opportunities. Rosenkranz, who studied with Professor of Pianoforte Robert Shannon, earned his master of music degree and performer's certificate from the Eastman School of Music, where he is now a doctoral-degree candidate. His other awards include a Presser Foundation grant to study Oliver Messiaen's Vingt regards sur l'enfant Jesus with Messiaen's wife, Yvonne Loriod, in Paris, France.
