Concerts to Highlight International Talent

Concerts to Highlight International Talent

After learning from some of the best musicians and conductors in the world, student musicians from Dallas and across the globe will perform six concerts, July 19-20, 26-27 and Aug. 2-3, at the Brookhaven College Performance Hall.

Tickets for each event are just $15 and can be purchased at cicamusicfestival.org. Available exclusively to the Brookhaven College community are 50 "pay what you can" tickets: whether you choose to pay nothing, full price or something in between, you pay what you can. To request the special-offer tickets, contact Brianna Johnson at Ext. 4122 or brianna@dcccd.edu.

The Chen International Culture and Arts Summer Music Festival has moved from its original home in Eureka Springs, Arkansas to Dallas this year. Internationally renowned conductor Maestro Thomas Chun-yu Chen created the CICA festival in 2009. Guest artists at the CICA--which include more than 35 internationally recognized, classical musicians and conductors--also attract students who will spend three weeks learning from these experts, often playing alongside them.

The concert series, which features not only the students but also the outstanding professional musicians who taught the programs, supports the educational mission of the festival. Soloists at the performances will include pianist Andrey Ponochevny, winner of the Tchaikovsky International Competition and numerous other international awards, and Grammy Award-winning cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio, among others.
