Pianist Orli Shaham is not only a gifted solo artist in a wide range of repertoire: She is also committed to nurturing the next generation of classical music performers and audiences. Her education projects are wide-ranging and encompass work for a variety of age groups. For instance, the project Baby Got Bach finds Shaham, its founder, and others instructing the youngest of new listeners (and their parents), instilling in them an appreciation of classical music.

On Sunday, March 5th, Shaham works with musicians who are slightly older, but still in the early stages of their careers. She appears in a concert at Carnegie Hall with the New York Youth Symphony (tickets here), playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. The performance will be at 2 PM in Stern Auditorium and also includes a performance of Sibelius’s Second Symphony and Mojave Music, a new work by Ethan Braun. 

More artists should take a cue from Shaham, who realizes that in giving her time and energies to working with young musicians, she is helping to preserve music’s place in people’s lives for future generations.
