Guest Artist: Alyssa ParkAlyssa Park established an enviable international reputation at age sixteen for being the youngest prizewinner in the history of the Tchaikovsky International Competition. In addition to being awarded the bronze medal in 1990, shewas also honored by the jury for being the most promising talent, most artistic performer, most interesting personality, and for displaying the best mastery of the instrument.
Alyssa Park has made numerous recital and orchestral appearances in this country since her professional debut at age eleven with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. Her New York City debut recital at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall was critically acclaimed by The New York Times for "an unusually strong technique and a youthful sense of music making." Other notable credits include the Ravinia Festival's Rising Star Series, Kennedy Center Recital Series, Oregon Bach Festival, and Rockefeller University in New York City.
