Andrew Tyson with Renaissance Musical Arts and Young Concert Artists
Andrew Tyson is about to be very busy. The pianist, who won first prize at the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, has been invited to tickle ivories across the country. The reason behind his success: his seemingly effortless mastery of everything from Chopin and Bach to Rachmaninov and Schumann. <p>
At the age of 11, Rovshan Mamedkuliev picked up a guitar for his first lesson. To fans of the virtuoso, it may seem as if he hasn’t put it down since. Mamedkuliev, who has been described by his teachers as possessing “an excellent ear, tenacious memory, a developed sense of rhythm and form, and bright artistry,” has gone on to win awards across the globe, one of the most prestigious of which was the XXX Guitar Foundation of America’s International Concert Artist Competition. Rovshan has also performed throughout the world at venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Moscow’s Russian Concert Hall while still finding time to teach at his alma mater, Nizhny Novgorod Conservatoire, and sing his guitar to sleep every night.<p>
Massry Center for the Arts
Named for the Massry family, whose contributions to The College of Saint Rose helped propel the construction of the arts emporium, the Massry Center for the Arts furthers community appreciation for the arts through performances and events. Music-education classrooms and rehearsal rooms beckon fledgling performers to further their sonic craft, whereas a gallery and a recital hall allow artists to showcase their paintings or beat-boxed readings of the Constitution. The entire environmentally friendly center adheres to green standards, with a geothermal system for heating and cooling, wind-powered electricity, and hardwood floors made of American cherrywood culled from tree farms.
