The 2016 Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival returns to Vicksburg! Every two years, The Gilmore announces two new young artists of exceptional talent and presents them with the Gilmore Young Artist Award. The award comes after an extended period of critique by a six-member panel… while the artists in question have no clue they’re being judged. The New York Times recently called The Gilmore’s selection process “the music world’s version of the MacArthur Foundation’s ‘genius’ grants: a prestigious prize that cannot be applied for or sought.”
A San Francisco Bay Area native, 18-year-old Daniel Hsu will perform his debut recital as a 2016 Gilmore Young Artist. Daniel currently attends the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.
Tickets for this event are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $5 for students (18 and under), and $25 for families of five or more. Doors open at 3:30 PM - Concert starts at 4:00 PM.
