Walden Chamber Music Society presents: Curtis to Colorado, featuring Wei Luo, pianist

Walden Chamber Music Society presents pianist Wei Luo at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Salida SteamPlant Event Center. 

Wei Luo has been a student of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music since she was 12 years old. 

Revue Magazine said of Wei Luo earlier this year, “The young artist is carving out her own space among her Curtis predecessors with deep sonorites, fiery intensity and unfiltered rawness. Luo’s strong connection to the Russian compositions was plain throughout the concert.” 

The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians to engage a local and global community through the highest level of artistry. One of the most selective schools in the United States, Curtis accepts four percent of applicants each year on average, and a tuition-free policy ensures that talent and artistic promise are the only considerations for admission. With a small student body of about 175, Curtis ensures that each young musician receives an education of unparalleled quality, distinguished by a “learn by doing” philosophy and personalized attention from a faculty that includes a high proportion of actively performing musicians.

Curtis students hone their craft through the 200 orchestra, opera, solo and chamber music offerings each year and programs that bring arts access and education to the community. This real-world training allows these extraordinary young musicians to join the front rank of performers, composers, conductors, and musical leaders, making a profound impact on music onstage and in their communities.
