A concert celebrating award-winning pianist Yehudi Wyner

Ecce Ensemble is honored to celebrate Yehudi Wyner's profound cultural contributions in a dedicated evening concert. The event will feature a performance of selected works by Wyner, including selections from Commedia as well as “Concert Duo,” “Trio 2009,” and “Refrain,” followed by a discussion moderated by composer Martin Brody.

Yehudi Wyner is one of America’s most distinguished and beloved musicians. His compositions include over one hundred works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, solo voice and solo instrument, piano, chorus, and music for the theater, as well as liturgical services for worship. He has received commissions from Carnegie Hall, the Boston Symphony, the BBC Philharmonic, the Library of Congress, the Ford Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. Wyner has received a Pulitzer Prize, a Grammy, two Guggenheim Fellowships, and the Elise Stoeger Prize given by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center for his “lifetime contribution to chamber music.” Wyner is currently serving as President of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His diverse accomplishments have placed him in a select group of eminent American artists.
