The Lied Center Piano Academy

Barnes Named Artistic Director of the Lied Center Piano Academy

The artistic collaboration that I have enjoyed with the Lied Center for Performing Arts has been a professional highlight of my 25 years at the Glenn Korff School of Music.Whether presenting a Philip Glass premiere or a CD release performance with Brooklyn Rider, the Lied Center has been at the leading edge of my musical world.It is with great joy that I accept the position of Artistic Director of the Lied Center Piano Academy. I have been passionately dedicated to inspiring young pianists in reaching their full human and musical potential and the LCPA fulfills that aspiration perfectly.My vision for the Academy includes creating an exhilarating and inspiring environment where high school pianists from all over the country can be challenged to explore every aspect of their musicianship.Using the world renowned faculty of the Glenn Korff School of Music, I want to inspire young pianists to think in very new ways about music that will make them a force for good in the world.Academy fellows will engage the rich tradition of piano music but also explore improvisation and the exciting world of contemporary piano music.I’m thrilled to put my creative, artistic, and pedagogical energy into the Lied Center Piano Academy and look forward to welcoming many young pianists to our campus this July.
