Cedarville, Ohio—Greek pianist Vassilis Varvaresos will perform at Cedarville University on Sunday, April 6 as part of the Springfield Arts Council Rising Stars Series. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Dixon Ministry Center on the Cedarville campus. At age 14, Varvaresos won First Prize at the 1998 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the youngest pianist ever to do so. He appeared at Carnegie`s Weill Recital Hall as recipient of the Summis Auspiciis Prize and has also performed in concerts and festivals around the world. "The Stewart News" (Florida) said of him, "Fifteen-year-old Vassilis Varvaresos was stunning. His playing in the 'Chopin Nocturne' was wonderfully expressive, and he summoned up a dreamlike tranquility that was truly ravishing." Tickets are $18 for adults and $12.50 for students.
