KANSAS CITY, MO (August 26, 2019) — Kenny Broberg, Van Cliburn Silver Medalist, Park ICM piano master’s candidate, and, most recently, International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition Bronze Medalist, will return to perform for Kansas City audiences as part of Stanislav & Friends, September 20, in Helzberg Hall. Kenny, 25, won the Bronze Medal at The International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in June. He was the only American to make the finals.

Considered THE competition in the international music community, the International Tchaikovsky Competition began in 1958. The main purpose of the musical competition is revealing new talent. And Kenny’s star has been rising rapidly since then.

Kenny Broberg rose to international fame after winning the Silver Medal at the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas. Coached by Van Cliburn Gold Medalist, Stanislav Ioudenitch, Kenny won with performances marked by “an imaginative shaping of themes, revelation of inner voices, and a unfailing sense of momentum.” (Texas Classical Review)
