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.”
