Nestled in the river bluffs overlooking Kansas City, MO, a musical enclave is quietly producing some of the best classical musicians in the world. Based on the Classic European Apprenticeship Model, the Park International Center for Music is transforming talented protégés in piano, violin, viola and cello into world-class performers.

Our internationally renowned instructors prepare students not only for the rarefied air of top international competition, but also in the life skills needed to thrive in their chosen profession.

No other American music program provides this intensive European protégé/master training.

It could be argued that Park University’s International Center for Music wouldn’t exist without Benny Lee. He is, after all, the person who introduced founder Stanislav Ioudenitch to the University back in 2003. Flash forward 16 years, and on Friday, September 20th, 2019, the University will honor Benny and his wife, Edith, at the much-anticipated Stanislav & Friends, a fund-raising event presented by Park ICM. Serving as the gala’s inaugural Honorary Chairmen, the evening celebrates the incredible talent of the faculty, students and alumni of this unique boutique music program. The Lee’s are “so happy” to lend their names to this star-studded event.
