The culmination of an intensive annual competition, Concerto Division Winners of the Seattle Young Artists Music Festival Association (SYAMFA) will perform concerti by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Bartók in a stellar event accompanied by Philharmonia Northwest, conducted by Julia
Tai. With generous support from Northwest Pianos, this year's piano soloists are grateful to perform on a 9 ft Fazioli F278. Audience members should prepare to be astonished by the adult level performances they will hear!
