The Young Artist Series, presented under the auspices of the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation, features prize winners and finalists of the biennial New York International Piano Competition at venues in New York, Connecticut and Washington, D.C. A roster of talented, emerging artists offer eclectic programs of classical piano music, including repertoire from the 17th century to the present.

Rather than the traditional competition model where the focus is on winning, The New York International Piano Competition provides an opportunity for contestants to perform, network, exchange information and cultivate a support system that will carry them through their pre-professional years. The competition is dedicated to providing artistic development, educational enhancement, seminars, master classes and performance opportunities. 

Greenwich House Music School is pleased to host three programs in the 2018-19 season. Each recital is free and open to the public, held on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the Renee Weiler Concert Hall. Unique to this series, we invite students at the Music School to attend a Q&A with the featured artist beginning at 7:00 p.m.

The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation , a non-profit organization, is an outgrowth of The Stecher and Horowitz School of the Arts. Founded in 1960, in Cedarhurst, New York, the school was Nassau County’s leading conservatory of music until its transition in 1999 to New York City. Melvin Stecher and Norman Horowitz, Executive Directors of the Foundation and Founders of the original school, devoted a lifetime to more than 15,000 students enrolled during its thirty-nine year history.

The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation is committed to furthering the education, recognition, and fostering of gifted young musicians, helping sustain and preserve the essence of our cultural life through audience development and community involvement. Serving pianists ages 16-25, the foundation seeks and develops emerging talent through its flagship programs: the New York International Piano Competition and the Young Artists Series. The foundation mentors aspirants, helping them achieve their personal and professional goals through career guidance, artistic development, and performance opportunities. Individuality and excellence are mainstays of the foundation’s core objectives, focusing the young artists’ horizons toward the pursuit of a realistic and attainable career in music.

Concerned about the future, the Foundation realized the next chapter in its mission was to serve as mentors, supporting and inspiring young musicians through the The New York International Piano Competition. Constantly expanding its vision, The Foundation continues to serve and inspire outstanding young musicians worldwide.
