Good news! Project 88 Music Academy is hiring new faculty members! Please read into the details below.

Élider DiPaula: Project 88 Music Academy is a nonprofit [501(c)(3)] organization that aims to make high-quality music education accessible to all students. Our students currently participate in one of two programs: Preparatory Program (introductory music classes) and Apprentice Program (private lessons, group classes, and Composition classes).

The Academy is expanding and we are looking to add more teachers, specifically for our Apprentice Program to teach either piano, violin, brass, and/or composition (including theory concepts) through private lessons and larger group classes.

NOVEMBER 13 CONCERT CHANGE!
Due to illness, The Project Chamber Orchestra will not be performing this Saturday night.

BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Project 88 will still have live music this Saturday evening!

The Gill-Han-Gonzalez Trio will take the stage and share their various combinations of violin, cello, and piano with the Project 88 audience.

First, we will embark on the journey from Debussy's Sonata for Cello and Piano in a modern-day commedia dell'arte version of "Pierrot is angry at the moon" to Beethoven's fourth cello sonata, composed during the time when his deafness was overwhelmingly profound. Followed by Ravel's dedication to the memory of Debussy, where the "music is stripped to the bone," we'll experience the Sonata for Violin and Cello. Finally, in celebration of Astor Piazzolla's 100th birthday, we welcome the season of 'Winter' with the second piece from his Estaciones Porteñas for piano trio.

If you have already reserved tickets on Eventbrite, your tickets are still valid.

If you have not yet reserved tickets, you can still do so at www.project88musicacademy.org/concert-tickets or by visiting Project 88 Music Academy on Eventbrite.

If you prefer to watch from home, the performance will be rebroadcast on Sunday, November 14th at 2pm on our website, www.project88musicacademy.org/concert-series/watch-now.
Tomorrow (11/14) CCPA's David Schrader, Professor of Music History, will present a program on harpsichord and clavichord, both teaching and performing on these instruments in Project 88 's final installment of "Into the Music World." Tune in at 6:30pm Central!!

The ensemble will perform "Piano Quintet in F Minor" by César Franck and "Piano Quintet in G Minor" by Dmitri Shostakovich.

LIMITED TIME! Rewatch The Complete Chopin Études until Sunday, March 20th

Pianist Yuri Tanaka performed The Complete Chopin Études this past Saturday. During the performance, Ms. Tanaka performed two sets of études composed by Frédéric Chopin, Opus 10 (published 1833) and Opus 25 (published 1837), which include 24 of the 27 études Chopin wrote during his lifetime.

Both sets of études demonstrate Chopin’s revolutionary approach to composition, as they simultaneously created a new instrumental genre for the concert hall, boldly explored new harmonic and rhythmic compositional devices, and permanently transformed pianistic technique.

Don’t miss it!
The video of this amazing performance will be available to the public until Sunday, March 20th at 10:00 P.M.
