The Two Piano Project- January 30, 2014 Tsai Performance Center @ 8pm

The Two Piano Project

Music is a collaborative art.   Many people, musicians and composers are among them, are required to produce a performance of music. As an organization part of an academic institution, collaboration is at the core of Harvard’s values, as it is through collaboration that progress and fulfillment can be achieved.

 

With these goals in mind and with the passion to create music, Boston University’s Piano Department chairman Boaz Sharon, Co-President of the Harvard College Piano Society George Ko and concert pianist and BU doctoral candidate Anna Arazi have decided to create the Two Piano Project.  This project entails an annual recital series featuring Boston University and Harvard students performing two piano works side by side.  George Ko and Millie Shi are the Harvard directors and Anna Arazi is the Boston University director and coach for this event.
