Classical Pianist Garrick Ohlsson Inspires OCSA Students During Master Class

World-renowned classical pianist Garrick Ohlsson was the first American to win the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1970. To date, he has mastered more than 80 concertos, performing with acclaimed orchestras around the world. In addition to being one of the leading exponents of the music of Chopin, he is also noted for his masterly performances of works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.

Ohlsson gives a motivating and impactful master class for Orange County School of the Arts students from the Instrumental Music Conservatory Pianist Program. Students prepare and perform classical piano repertoire and receive personal critique and coaching from Ohlsson in various aspects of interpretation and technique. Students observe and participate in a Q&A session. His appearance is made possible by a partnership with Pacific Symphony and generous sponsors Maureen and Mike Mekjian, the McBeth Foundation and the Samueli Foundation.
