South Korean pianist Chaeyoung Park

Despite COVID-19, the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival is still bringing first-class pianists to Kalamazoo. But instead of seeing them perform live on stage, you can see their performances live-streamed to your living room.

South Korean pianist Chaeyoung Park, winner of the 2019 Hilton Head International Piano Competition, will perform at 4 p.m. Oct. 18 as part of The Gilmore’s Rising Stars Series. Among the works the 22-year-old will play is Brahms’ Sonata No. 3 in F
Minor, Op. 5. Park will also answer live questions after the concert.

Tickets are available on a “name your own price” basis and can be purchased at thegilmore.org .
