About the Program

The Celebration of Great Composers has become a great SU tradition that gives local piano students from elementary to high school age the opportunity to perform on the Steinway concert piano at Salisbury University, Great Hall of Holloway Hall. Founded by music faculty member Luba Paskova in 2006, the series originated as a way to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth. The concert series is a great opportunity to bring young pianists to SU’s Concert Hall and gives them the unforgettable experience of public performance. In addition to learning about a variety of composers, students also gain experience in understanding concert etiquette and audience participation. This series serves as a fundraiser for Salisbury University Performing Arts Fund. The annual event is open to the public, a donation of $5.00 is recommended at the door.
