  • | 7:30pm - 9:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, Classical Music, piano
    - 13-year old pianist Adam Jackson will be the first of Impromptu's "Prodigies" to perform. Listeners in Wales, the United States, and Poland have all remarked that his performances at age 12 often surpassed those of seasoned adults.

    **********************PROGRAM************************
    Bach. Prelude and Fugue in D minor WTC Book 2
    Haydn. Sonata No. 49 in E-flat
    Drozdoff. Elegia, Larghetto in B minor, Andantino in F
    Liszt. Sonetto 104 del Petrarca
    Granados. Fandango de Candil (from Goyescas)

    ADAM JACKSON was born in the UK to a Polish mother and a Welsh father, and began his piano studies at the age of 7 after his family moved from Dubai to the United States. He is the student of renowned pianist, Ms. Benita Meshulam, and has just turned 13 this past summer.

    In 2013, Adam entered and won the Leschetizky Association Gifted Youth competition in New York. While still only 10 years old, he won the first Hoff-Barthelson Music School/Westchester Symphony student concerto competition and played the 1st movement of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 with the Symphony of Westchester. In March 2014, he played the 3rd movement of the same concerto in a master class with David Dubal, the noted American pianist, broadcaster, and Juilliard School professor. Just after he turned 11, Adam won the Under 16 piano competition at the National Eisteddfod of Wales, and was a runner up in the Blue Riband.

    The year 2015 saw a marked increase in the number, frequency, and amplitude of Adam’s accomplishments: he participated in a master class with renowned pianist Ilana Vered; performed at the Leschetizky Association’s Living Artists Recital; was invited to and performed the whole of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with orchestra at the Siletz Bay Music Festival, Oregon; performed at Jocelyn Freeman’s invitation in her piano recital at the Newport Music Society, Wales; performed at the Theodor Leschetizky memorial tribute concert in New York City; played the first movement of Beethoven’s 1st Piano Concerto with the New York Chamber Players Orchestra in New York City; made an appearance at the Mezzrow Jazz Club, New York City; and performed Scarlatti at the New York Youth Players Concert.

    This year, Adam again won the Leschetizky Association Gifted Youth Competition, performing the first movement of Haydn’s Piano Sonata 49 in E-flat major. He also participated in Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s “Festivals in Style” and he was invited to perform music by Haydn and Liszt at the donor’s reception of the HBMS Annual Benefit Concert. In April, Adam appeared in a New York City master class with the American pianist Alan Weiss, Professor of Music at both the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven, Belgium and the Utrecht Conservatory, Netherlands. That same month, he reached the finals of the Adelphi Orchestra Concerto Competition in New York. Adam returned to Siletz Bay the summer of 2016 where he not only performed Mozart’s 23rd Piano Concerto with the Festival Orchestra, but also gave a solo recital. Later that summer, he appeared in another recital at the Fishguard International Music Festival, Wales UK.

    This performance is a collaboration between Lyric Hall Theater and The Drozdoff Society's Impromptu! Classical Music Recital Series.

    - On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

    The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

    In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

    We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.
