Daniel Schlosberg

Directed by Daniel Schlosberg (BM ’00, MM ’01, Piano; A&S BA ’00, History), Baltimore Lieder Weekend XI has been announced to be October 16 to 18 and titled “‘The Price Is Right’: Leontyne & Florence & Art Song.” Whether this will occur live at An die Musik Live, virtually, or postponed is still being determined. This important repertoire was thought of late last year, but of course has taken on even increasing relevance with BLM discussions these past few months.

Sahun Sam Hong Awarded Prize by American Pianists Association Reply

Sahun Sam Hong (GPD ’15, MM ’17, Piano), a DMA piano candidate, has been granted a cash prize of $50,000 as one of the finalists of the 2021 American Pianists Awards. The American Pianists Association has decided to grant each of the five finalists now, rather than wait for the winner to be crowned in June 2021. The organization sees the need for these artists to receive assistance now since they aren’t currently performing due to COVID-19. The competition will culminate with a celebratory weekend June 25-27, 2021, in Indianapolis, at which time the winner of the Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship will be announced.
