Congratulations to the cello choir ensemble directed by Katya Janpoladyan that represented Lydia Music Center at the Greater Pittsburgh Chinese New Year Celebration this year. It was very successful, and the cello choir also featured Zara Mladenova, a soprano, as the singer. The performers in the ensemble must also be applauded for their astounding performance: Bobo Liang, Kyle Demi, Tina Li, Patric Upton, Nick Lev, Amelia Bothe, and Erin Snyder (also a teacher from Lydia Music Center). Please take a look at their performance below.
Congratulations to an amazing piano recital on January 15th. Erica Lin's students all showed great improvement with their classical piano selections. Also, featured in the piano recital was a special vocal performance by Kevin Gruden's student. Please take a look at some of the clips of our students' performances and some of the pictures of the recital!
Thanks to the efforts of Tatyana Swanson and Erin Snyder, a grand Christmas concert was organized for December 18th. Around 50 students of Erica Lin, Erin Snyder, Tatyana Swanson, Tara Yaney, and Dan Zanaunick gave stunning performances. The teachers also participated in the concert alongside students, and selections of classical and holiday music marked it to be an extremely enjoyable night. We are very proud of the amount of hard work that students and teachers have put in to make this a successful concert, especially since this was our first annual Christmas concert. Hundreds attended this concert, and we have received tons of positive feedback. Please take a look at the pictures and videos of their performances below.
Additionally, vouchers for free lessons at Lydia Music Center were given out at the concert.
We are very proud that Lydia Music Center teacher Mark Priore was able to perform at the Cast-P New Year Celebration on December 17th of this year. His "Sweet Georgia Brown" saxophone solo contributed to the upbeat and exciting atmosphere of the performance. Even following his brilliant solo, the audience requested for him to play another! Here's a clip of his performance.
We had a very successful performance on Saturday, January 30 at North Allegheny Senior High School. Please take a look at our performances; I have them all linked below. We've received great feedback and praise. We are very proud of our teachers and the talents of our students, as well as the support they have shown us. Thank you all very much for this awesome performance!!
