One of the most exciting artists to emerge from the acclaimed Young Concert Artists program, Tomer Gewirtzman, pianist, is slated to perform at the Sandler Center’s Miller Theatre. The concert is presented by Virginia Arts Festival.

Hailed by The Washington Post as an artist of “formidable virtuosity and stylistic sensitivity,” Israeli pianist Gewirtzman has impressed audiences around the world. This season, he makes his New York recital debut on the Young Concert Artists Series and performs a D.C. recital on the Washington Performing Arts Series.

Winner of a First at the 2015 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Gewirtzman has won major competitions across the globe, including First Prize at the 2014 Wideman International Piano Competition in Louisiana, First Prize and a special prize for a commissioned piece for the competition at the 2010 Clairmont Competition in Israel, and First Prize at the Aspen Music Festival Concerto Competition.

Founded in 1961 in New York, Young Concert Artists program has discovered and launched the careers of many internationally celebrated musicians, including such stars as violinist Pinchas Zukerman, pianists Emanuel Ax, Jeremy Denk, and Murray Perahia. The New York Times wrote: “Young Concert Artists has acquired a special status in the musical world, and deservedly so. It is extremely doubtful that any organization anywhere could have matched the YCA record for spotting great talent and helping it along.”

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students/seniors. Tickets are available at the Sandler Center box office, by calling 877-YNOTTIX, or online at YNOTTIX.com.
