2016 Cliburn Festival: An American Influence

The Cliburn Festival is a new annual event designed to examine different perspectives in music—such as the work of a singular composer, the music of a particular moment in history, or a significant stylistic movement.

The Festival will comprise five concerts held February 18–21, 2016 at five different venues and will feature performances by pianists Ralph Votapek (1962 Cliburn gold medalist), Spencer Myer (2009 Cliburn competitor), Henry Kramer, and Kate Stevens; soprano Ava Pine; baritone Jonathan Beyer; the Attacca Quartet; cellist Allan Steele; and violinist Ertan Torgul.

Each concert takes a look at how a particular, fundamental element of American culture has played a role in the creation of great, classical music. The Festival, which began in 2015 with an exploration of the works of Chopin, is an annual initiative designed to examine different perspectives in music—such as the work of a singular composer, the music of a particular moment in history, or a significant stylistic movement. An American Influence is an exploration of where U.S. popular culture and classical composition collide.
