The thirteenth annual CAMTA ticket program has been created with donations made in the name of our beloved past president, Philippe Gelinas. As the founder of CAMTA’s program to obtain discounted tickets for the piano series, Phil believed that the future of concerts depends on youthful attendance now.

All CAMTA teachers may select a total of two students from their studio to attend free of charge the concert by Daniil Trifonov on March 26, 2017, at Symphony Center. The program will include Schumann Kinderszenen, Toccata, Op.7, Kreisleriana, Shostakovich Selections from 24 Preludes and Fugues, and Stravinsky Three Movements from Petrushka.

“Daniil Trifonov made a sparkling debut with the CSO in 2012, and each subsequent appearance in Chicago has confirmed his emergence as one of the biggest and brightest talents among his generation of pianists. The Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competition winner returns for a glorious concert of Schumann, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky.”

Phil had a special ability to teach a very wide variety of students.  You may choose a student because he or she has never been to a concert, has worked especially hard, is interested in majoring in music, or for any reason you think is worthy. The teacher should ask the student/parent prior to selection, and they need to commit to go. The age limit is eight years old through high school.

In order to prolong the program, free tickets to parents will be given only under special circumstances. Contact Terry Tennes with these requests.  Otherwise extra tickets are available for $20 each.

Applications must be postmarked by Friday, February 3, or brought to the CAMTA meeting on February 10.
Please send the application form, a SASE, and one check made payable to CAMTA for any extra tickets requested to:
