Van Cliburn Gold Medalist

Be one of the first to witness the next piano sensation when the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medalist, Vadym Kholodenko,  makes his Houston debut.

Attracting talented candidates from all over the world such as former winners Nobuyuki Tsujii, Alexander Kobrin and Olga Kern, Kholodenko now takes his place among them, being awarded with three years of international concert engagements and a CD of his winning performance.
