Saturday 4/10

Join us for a conversation and exclusive performance "watch party" with Umi Garrett, one of the top 6 prize winners from the 2020 National Chopin Piano Competition.

Umi Garrett first caught national attention as a child prodigy who released her first album at age 9 and appeared on TV’s Ellen DeGeneres show at age 8. A consummate performing artist, Umi, now 20, has graced the stages of many important international concert halls. She was definitely a stand out at the 2020 National Chopin Piano Competition and for today’s event, we will enjoy her quarterfinal round performance, including these wonderful pieces by Chopin:

Waltz in A-flat Major, Op. 34, No. 1
Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat minor, Op. 31
Polonaise in F-sharp minor, Op. 44
Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23

Most recently, 20-year-old Umi was awarded 4th prize at the 2020 National Chopin Competition and 1st prize in the Juilliard School’s concerto competition, performing Ravel’s G Major Concerto. She has performed in a solo charity concert at Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin, Germany in the summer of 2016 to collaborate with the IPPNW, the International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War; a concert tour with the Symphonia Boca Raton lead by Adam Glaser in Florida in early 2016; a debut concert at the Mainly Mozart Festival in San Diego, California; a debut with the Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra lead by Maestro Kazuyoshi Akiyama in Hiroshima, Japan; a solo-recital concert tour in Japan and a return engagement with the Missouri Symphony Orchestra. Past engagements include a concert with Nicholas McGegan with the Pasadena Symphony and Pops, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Alexander Mickelthwate. She made an appearance at the TEDxOC conference and the TEDxHarkerSchool conference in California as both a performer and a speaker. In addition, Umi gave solo recitals in the 2013-2014 and the 2014-2015 seasons in a total of nearly 60 cities throughout the United States.
