Every two years, Battle Creek audiences wait with anticipation to see who the Gilmore Keyboard Festival selects as their “Gilmore Young Artist.” You’ll be one of the first to discover the talents of the 2018 winner, destined to become one of the next generation of piano superstars, performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The season comes to a close with Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8. Dvorak said of this cheerful piece, “Melodies simply pour out of me” as he worked on this composition.
