BIOGRAPHY

Adam Chefitz was a teenage piano prodigy who at 17 learned to read
music and shortly thereafter began studying virtuoso repertoire. At
18, he played the Presto-Finale from Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"
live on WTMI Classical Radio, with on-the-air praise from James Judd,
then conductor of the Florida Philharmonic.

He studied music at the Claremont Colleges in Los Angeles, where for his graduation recital he performed Bach's "Goldberg Variations" and
Liszt's "Totentanz", and where he won the the Rudolph Polk Memorial
Award in Music made possible by an endowment from Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorsky. He has attended the Aspen Music Festival and
School multiple times and studied in Vienna during his junior year
abroad.

In December, 2010 he gave the world premiere of Carson Kievman's Geneva on Tuesday and in April, 2011 he gave the American premiere of Robert Chumbley's Brahmsiana II. 

Adam is a passionate teacher to students of all ages at the Sobe Institute of the Arts.
