Piano Prodigy Miles Walter to Perform at
Pakachoag Music School
Winner of Multiple Competitions; Student of Vladimir Odinokikh
Saturday, March 9, 2013, at 2:00 PM, promises area music lovers a rare treat. As part of Pakachoag Music School's 30th Anniversary celebration, pianist Miles Walter, 18, will give a free community concert of works by Mozart, Liszt, Rachmaninov and Rorem.
Walter has studied piano for more than seven years with Vladimir Odinokikh, a member of the Pakachoag faculty. He is currently completing his senior year at Keene (NH) High School.
Walter's wins in international competition include:
• First Place, 2012 Stony Brook Young Artist's International Piano Competition
• A First Prize, 2012 Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition
• A First Prize, 2012 Williams Chorale Bacardi Fallon Scholarship competition
• Accepted as one of 20 international participants in the Eastman Young Artist's International Piano Competition (2012)
"Miles is one of those exceptional students who is accomplished at more than one calling," said Sarah Smongeski, Pakachoag executive director. "Besides his obvious gift for piano, he's also active in his School's theatre program, having recently played Hamlet. And he has been accepted at Yale University in the fall for a potential double major in physics and music. We're thrilled to host Miles' performance."
Early in his career, Odinokikh won the First Prize in the Chamber Music Competition of Soviet Composers (1983) in his native Russia. He was a prize winner in the Russia National Competition (1993), and competed in the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition, the Tchaikovsky International Competition, and several other international competitions as a collaborative artist.
