The Colina Concerto Project
RPPF is thrilled to present a contemporary concerto recording opportunity for selected RPPF Alumni.
My long-time friend and composer Michael Colina, has recently finished a lengthy 5-movement piano concerto that will be rehearsed, recorded and performed May 25-30, 2020 at USF in Tampa. The project will take place in the USF Concert Hall with The Florida Orchestra conducted by Mark Sforzini, Music Director and Conductor of the St. Petersburg Opera and Tampa Bay Symphony. Recording sessions will be filmed as well as recorded. A live run-through performance with audience is planned for May 29.
All are welcome to attend.
This project is intended as a career builder for young pianists. Five pianists will learn and perform one movement each. The soloists will receive national and international publicity and will also receive complimentary CD’s and DVD’s. Travel inside the USA, hotel, per-diem and local transportation will be covered.
We hope to do more projects like this in the future!
