Aleksei Vyzhanov, piano
In the Artist’s words…
My story began with an orchestral debut as a piano soloist in my hometown at eight years old. Since then, I have performed across Russia as well as France, Germany, Austria, Spain and the United States.
Holding a Master’s Degree from Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory under Professor Vladimir Ovchinnikov and an Artist Diploma at Texas Christian University under Dr. Tamás Ungár, I am now pursuing an Doctor of Musical Arts degree program at University of North Texas under Dr. Pamela Mia Paul.
As a concert musician, I have performed at the Saint Petersburg House of Music as part of a prestigious concert series offered for audiences all over Russia. I worked with the Texas Christian University Opera Studio on the inaugural production of the opera “Yeltsin in Texas" and with Texas Christian University Symphony Orchestra as a collaborative pianist.
My achievements include awards from numerous international competitions and festivals such as the Skryabin Open Festival and Competition; Igumnova International Festival and Competition of Young Pianists; Concert with Orchestra Open Competition of Young Performers; Sforzando International Youth Classical Music Competition and River of Talents Musical Project.
In addition, I have played solo in a concert series with a Nizhny Novgorod Symphony Orchestra, Voronezh State Symphony Orchestra, Tambov State Symphony Orchestra, and Lipetsk Symphony Orchestra.
