According to the foundation, "the pandemic and following civil unrest has created a dire situation for the world of arts and especially for young promising artists, the Board of our Foundation has decided to redirect its efforts to support and strengthen local community in attributing grants to young artists in the United States and overseas."
Filmed in Latvia, Azerbaijan, and Italy, three rising stars were chosen to participate in the Chopin-centric program hosted from Australia by Madeline Cross Parkin, the foundation's Director of Grants (Brisbane, Australia). Audiences can expect to hear from Katrina Suroveca (Riga, Latvia), Murad Abasov (Baku, Azerbaijan), and Martina Consonni (Como, Italy) in the 60 minute concert stream. The repertoire will range from Chopin classics to rarely heard gems.
Valhalla Media Live and its team has been tasked with spearheading the filming logistics and post-production of the multi-country offering, aiming to fulfill their mission of bringing world class artistry to viewers around the world. The stream will be viewable on any smart device and remain available for 72 hours after initial purchase.
There is a suggested fee for the concert, but there is a pay what you want option as well.
The event can be streamed here.
