Stanislav and Friends 2023 2023-03-17T13:05:26+00:00

There’s near the stage. There’s front row.
Then there’s rubbing elbows with the stars.

It was an amazing night of music on March 11th with Stanislav & Friends 2023 celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the International Center for Music! Thanks to everyone who was able to join us.

Stanislav and Friends is one of the best concert bargains of the year. Stanislav Ioudenitch himself is a concert hall headliner, and then you get his friends, who are also award-winning, towering talent.” – Patrick Neas, Special to the Star

For nearly two decades, under the leadership of 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medal Winner Stanislav Ioudenitch, Park University’s International Center for Music (ICM) has molded already accomplished musicians into national and international phenoms. Ioudenitch is widely admired and celebrated around the globe and on March 11, 2023, ICM will once again convene Stanislav’s friends, family, ICM alumni, and current faculty and students in this annual concert that writer Paul Pattison called, “. . . completely alluring. Bravo to all.”
