The mission of the Steinway Society of South Jersey is to provide performance opportunities for pianists and to assist students financially with the study of the piano.
In 2009, the Steinway Society, a registered Non Profit Organization, was launched in response to a need for more affordable piano performances in South Jersey, as well as offering financial and achievement awards for talented young piano students who compete in the annual Young Pianist Competition.
To provide interested piano students with encouraging opportunities to compete in small events for financial and achievement awards that acknowledge motivation and accomplishment.
To provide our guest concert artists with an opportunity to perform in the Steinway Recital Hall at Jacobs Music of Cherry Hill.
To plant the seeds of culture and musical enjoyment in the young people of our region, ensuring that the mission of our Steinway Society will succeed well into the future.
The Steinway Society of South Jersey concert series was started to provide a intimate performance venue for piano students, piano tethers, piano artists or people who just love piano music to come and hear the piano. We feature both Classical Piano Concerts but we also offer Jazz Piano Concerts as well. These concerts are a great way to experience some of the finest pianists up close, where students can see, hear and gain ideas and inspiration about both playing or performing a piano concert.
If you are interested in performing in one of our annual concerts, please email us at SteinwaySocitySJ@gmail.com.
To obtain the calendar for the upcoming season or to receive announcements, please contact us to join our mailing list.
The Society is governed by a board of directors, who serve without compensation.
Opportunities exist for new members to serve on committees and make important contributions toward planning our activities.
We hope you will join us in preserving our Society's appreciation of the piano, and help promote the young pianists of our community.
We need people to help us at our concerts, competitions and workshops. Anything from handing out fliers, programs, clean-up, set-up. Either drop us and Email. or give us a call. If you call ask for Sonja Lynne.
Initially as a composer, Kevin focused on pop songwriting but eventually became disillusioned with the elementary style of such compositional work. To explore more complex domains of music, he enrolled at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He majored in composition and continued piano studies under concert pianist Annette Dimedio, ph.d. During his senior year, he attended a seminar at the Curtis Institute of Music given by John Ccorigliano, two-time Grammy and Oscar award winner for Best Film score. Subsequently, Corigliano asked Kevin to study privately with him. While studying with Corigliano, Kevin pursued a Masters Degree at the City University of New York. After opening mSound in 1999, Kevin has produced and recorded numerous artists and bands and has been the re-recording mixer, foley sound editor and sound sweetener on over 100 ﬁlm projects. Kevin’s clients are well-served because of his musical education and experience, and his ability to interpret their needs and engineer their project from start to ﬁnish.
