Free classical concert features Roman Rudnytsky


World-renowned classical pianist Roman Rudnytsky, who has entertained the CNMI and worked with its students almost annually until the COVID-19 pandemic hit, is back, and performed in a concert last Saturday, March 18, and will do so again on March 25.

This Saturday’s concert will be held at the Pedro P. Tenorio Saipan Multi-Purpose Center at 6pm. He will be joined at the intermission by the MHS Glee Club, Rhythm and Harmony.

There is no entrance fee for the concerts. Contributions will be accepted and appreciated.

According to background information provided by the Friends of the Arts, Rudnytsky is an internationally active concert pianist of Ukrainian background whose frequent performances take him all over the world—to every continent and places in-between. In addition to performances in capital cities and important musical centers, he often plays in places away from the musical mainstream, bringing the world and pleasure of classical music to audiences which seldom experience this type of music in live performance. He has received much acclaim in the world’s press and many repeat invitations.

A graduate of the famous Juilliard School in New York, he also did additional studies at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland and in master classes in Austria (the “Mozarteum”) and Italy. Since 1972, Rudnytsky has been a member of the piano faculty of the Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio. He is a recipient of that institution’s “Distinguished Professor Award” in recognition of his concert activities. He previously served on the piano faculties of the Indiana University School of Music (Bloomington, Indiana) and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory, in addition to being “artist-in-residence” at two Australian universities.

This is Rudnytsky’s twelfth trip to the CNMI. The Friends of the Arts, with the help of sponsors from the Community, have hosted Rudnytsky’s stay. (PR)
