Don't miss renowned musician and lecturer Tema Blackstone as she leads an exciting masterclass in piano.

Tema Blackstone’s rich and varied life in music has grown out of her career as a pianist. Her influential work encompasses advocacy of music and musicians as a force for personal and societal well-being.  As an artist dedicated to forging deep human connections through music, the exploration and intricate relationship between audience, performer, student, and composer invigorates her work as a teacher & performer.  The Chen/Blackstone duo has performed annually in Shanghai, New York and Europe and Canada to great acclaim.  On the faculty of The Juilliard School’s Pre-College division in New York, she & her husband, Hung-Kuan Chen feel mentoring young pianists at Juilliard, through her non-profit foundation & performing as a piano duo, worldwide, informs the holistic perspective Blackstone believes in.

Art of Piano is supported by Heather Edwards, Helen Graham, the Artemisia Foundation, Tema Blackstone, and Hung-Kuan Chen.
