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

That’s the promise of Park University’s one-of-a-kind, third-annual event, Stanislav & Friends.

Held in the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, it’s a rare opportunity to experience the music and magnificence of the International Center for Music’s award-winning artists like Behzod Abduraimov, Igor Khukhua, Kenny Broberg, Maria Ioudenitch, and more. Even the grand finale promises to be quite a treat with full orchestra! The featured soloist will be the event’s namesake himself, Van Cliburn Gold Medalist  pianist Stanislav Ioudenitch, performing the spectacular Piano Concerto for the Left Hand by Maurice Ravel. Plus you can have your cake and eat it too with your chance to meet all performers in a dessert reception immediately following the performance in Brandmeyer Hall. It is free to all attendees of the concert. This is truly a concert event you don’t want to miss!

Event to feature the talents of: Stanislav Ioudenitch, Maria Ioudenitch, Ben SayevichLolita Lisovskaya-Sayevich, Igor Khukhua, Kenneth Broberg, and Behzod Abduraimov. Watch here for more details about the program as it develops!
