Join us for an evening with Adam Stern, acclaimed conductor. ADAM STERN was appointed Music Director of the Sammamish Symphony in the summer of 2015, after having served for several months as Interim Conductor. He brings more than forty years of conducting experience to the orchestra, as well as his characteristic programming which blends time-honored classics with little-known rarities. Stern also conducts the Seattle Philharmonic, of which he has been Music Director since 2003, and which has presented numerous world, U.S. and West Coast premieres under Stern's direction. The Port Angeles Symphony, which played under Stern's music directorship from 2005 until 2014, also enjoyed years of tradition and innovation as well as a widely-acknowledged and -acclaimed rise in its musical standards.
The widely anticipated XVIII International Chopin Piano Competition was held October 2-23 2021 in Warsaw, Poland. For many, it is the most important of the European piano competitions. It had, as so many other events, been postponed due to the pandemic.
The competition itself attracted 87 of the world’s best, and most driven, young pianists. To watch and admire the performances of so many talented pianists is exhilarating. For the piano stores near you, it can also be exciting because the choices of pianists when it comes to the piano they will play in the competition reflect on the current global landscape of the highest quality and high performance piano makers. Representing the FAZIOLI Seattle and Bellevue market, we eagerly awaited the results of the pianists who selected FAZIOLI.
