Piano soloist announcement: the historic Sunriver Resort Great Hall sets the stage for two groundbreaking performances featuring Ukrainian Dmytro Choni, one of the best young pianists in the world.

Choni, a brand new medalist of the Cliburn International Piano Competition, joins the Sunriver Music Festival Orchestra in a stunningly beautiful piano-centric evening on August 15 and performs solo on August 16. Visit now for tickets.

Choni began piano in his native Kyiv (Ukraine) when he was four years old. Now, a medalist of multiple international competitions, he says, “Music is always kind of a hideaway from whats going on in the world. Through the music, you can try to project the best possible emotion, the optimism, the hope.” Experience this hope August 15-16 in Sunriver.
