World-renowned pianist to perform The second of six performances of the season presented by the Indian Wells Valley Concert Association is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 10, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Burroughs High School Parker Performing Arts Center. Featured will be the Liana Forest Trio who are known for their span from “Moscow to Manhattan” and from ”Bach to Broadway.”

Liana Forest grew up a student of a renowned professor Ludmila Ginsburg, herself a graduate from Moscow Conservatoire under the tutelage of famous Heinrich Neuhaus (Richter and Gilels were among his other pupils).

Forest also appeared in recitals in Germany and Austria and performed for Princess Sofia of Romania. Her recent seasons have included appearances on National European Television in Holland, as well as orchestral and recital appearances in the U.S., Africa, Europe and Asia.

A way to save those hard-earned dollars is by purchasing a season membership for less than $15 per concert. Another option is to purchase individual tickets for each performance at the Maturango Museum, Jeff’s Music Shop or Red Rock Books.
