The 2017 Van Cliburn silver medalist, Kenny Broberg, will perform in recital Saturday in the Baugh Hall of the Sue and Frank Mayborn Performing Arts Center on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus in Belton.
The concert will feature music from Lugwig van Beethoven, Nikolai Medtner, Johann Sebastian Bach and Samuel Barber. The prologue will be Up Close with the Artist beginning 6:30 p.m. and the performance will begin 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the recital can be purchased online at templesymphony.org/tickets. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
This year will mark the 11th shared concert in the Central Texas area for the Van Cliburn Recital. The concert is a shared production between Central Texas Orchestral Society and the Temple Symphony Orchestra.
A native of Minneapolis, 23-year-old pianist Kenny Broberg won the silver medal at the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition for performances that showed “an imaginative shaping of themes, revelation of inner voices, and an unfailing sense of momentum,” according to Texas Classical Review.
Broberg’s 2017-2018 debut season as a Cliburn medalist includes a recital tour in Hawaii; a return to his alma mater, the University of Houston, for its annual Texas Music Festival; an orchestra and recital engagements in Denver, New Orleans, West Palm Beach and other cities across the United States.
In Europe, Broberg appears with the Rye Arts Festival and Hastings Philharmonic in the United Kingdom, and in a recital in Italy. His debut solo album was released by Decca Gold in August as part of his competition prizes.
