    - 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.

    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 St. Thomas Episcopal Church and The Drozdoff Society's Impromptu! Classical Music Recital Series.

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.
