The Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts presents pianist John Kamfonas with cellist Eric Edberg for an evening of classical delight.
Pianist John Kamfonas, combines his penchant for improvisation with his passion for the classical repertoire. Described as "mesmerizing ... inspirational...and eccentric" by the Deccan Herald in Bangalore, Kamfonas has given varied performances such as a fully improvised solo piano concert at Columbia University, solo and collaborative harpsichord performances with Manhattan School of Music’s Baroque Aria Ensemble, as well as an appearance at the Knitting Factory on electric keyboard supporting singer songwriter, Rachel Rossos. Mr. Kamfonas is also an active chamber musician having recently performed a piano duo recital at Manhattan School of Music with his sister, Grace Kamfonas, as well as a violin duo recital at Elizabethtown College. Mr. Kamfonas’ recent solo engagements include performances in Syracuse, Philadelphia, Steinway Hall in New York City, and most recently Greencastle, Indiana as a guest artist of the Greencastle Summer Music series. Other summer festival performances include International Academy of Music in Tuscany, Aspen Music Festival, PianoSummer at New Paltz, and Beijing International Music Festival and Academy, where Mr. Kamfonas had the honor of performing in the final young artist gala concert held at the Central Conservatory of Beijing. He has performed for masterclasses with Robert Levin, Jeremy Denk, Nelita True, and Jura Margulis and was recently awarded first prize at the Art of Piano Summer Festival Piano Competition held in Cincinnati, OH for his performance of works by Franz Liszt. Mr. Kamfonas holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Economics from Columbia University in New York and a Master of Music in Piano Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied under Phillip Kawin as the recipient of the Artur Balsam Foundation Endowed Scholarship.
