Welcome to

Curtis at All Hallows

The future stars of music performance…..today

The world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music has partnered once again with All Hallows Episcopal Church Wyncote to bring the current group of Curtis organ students to All Hallows in a series of 5 concerts during 2023/24 to be played on the historic Skinner Organ beginning on September 30, 2023 at 7:00pm.  The schedule for the first time includes two additional concerts: a String Chamber Music Concert (12/9), a Latvian Music Ensemble (3/16) and The Curtis Winds directed by faculty members of The Imani Winds (5/9/24).

Introducing the organ concert performers, Alan Morrison, Haas Charitable Trust Chair in Organ Studies, at Curtis said, “Our students perform all over the country (and the world), in venues large and small. They welcome the opportunity to play in this intimate performance venue on a classic organ that has been designed to complement the acoustics of the building.”

The next Curtis at All Hallows performance will be on Saturday, March 16th when Kārlis Bukovskis will be the featured artist. A native Alūksne, Latvia, entered the Curtis Institute of Music in 2022 and studies piano with Robert McDonald. All students at Curtis receive merit-based, full-tuition scholarships, and Mr. Bukovskis is the John J. Medveckis Fellow.

Mr. Bukovskis has delighted audiences with solo recitals and has won several important competitions, including the Latvian Young Piano National Competition, in which he received the main prize in his age category. He has also participated in concerts and festivals throughout Latvia, Lithuania, Georgia, Russia, and Uzbekistan. In 2015 and 2016, he was awarded the Excellence Award from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia.

Mr. Bukovskis has performed piano concertos with various orchestras, including works by Edvard Grieg, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. He has also participated in several masterclasses with Georgian pianist Eliso Virsaladze and Norwegian virtuoso Leif Ove Andsnes. In addition to his piano studies, he has studied composition and composed several works. In 2021, Mr. Bukovskis created a piece for the Latvian organ music project Doms iedvesmo, dedicated to the organ of the Riga Dome Cathedral.
