Originally from the foothills of Northern California, Greek-American pianist Antipa has won first place in numerous competitions. She has also performed extensively throughout the U.S., Africa and Europe. Antipa has a keen interest in Greek culture; as a member of the traditional Greek band, Oi Bounisi, she plays the santouri and loves Greek folk dancing.

Artist Diploma student Yaoyue Huang studies with CCM Professor Soyeon Kate Lee. The young pianist performs The Blood of the Stars by Scott Sherman and “Regard du Père” from Vingt Regards sur l'enfant Jesus by Olivier Messiaen. Huang focuses her playing on new music and exploring rarely performed 20th-century and contemporary works for solo piano and ensemble.

This performance includes a personal connection for the pianist; The Blood of the Stars composer Scott Sherman is Huang’s husband. Sherman graduates from CCM with an Artist Diploma in piano this year. In 2016, the couple took third place at the prestigious International Piano Duo Association’s 20th Piano Duo Competition in Tokyo — they were the only duo from the U.S. to advance that far in the competition.

About Music for All Seasons

Music for All Seasons has presented a series of concerts in Cincinnati since 2016. Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings we have decided to present informal on-line concerts featuring some of the musical artists that have performed in our concert series over the past several years. These are videos created by the artists themselves with the sole purpose of sharing their talents and giving the gift of music during the crisis we are all enduring. We hope you will receive them in the same spirit by giving thanks to the artists and by sharing them with your music-loving friends.
