Art on the Corner Spring Concert Series, celebrating J.S. Bach's 329th birthday, will welcome back virtuoso pianist Maxim Anikushin at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 7420 4th Avenue in Bay Ridge.
A Moscow native, Anikushin began studying piano at age five. At age 11, he entered the Moscow Conservatory, studying under Y.I. Batuyev. After immigrating to the USA in 1991, Anikushin studied with Milton Salkind at the San Francisco Conservatory and received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the Juilliard School as a full scholarship student of Oxana Yablonskaya. Anikushin is currently enrolled in the DMA program at The Manhattan School of Music as the student of Solomon Mikowsky.
In addition to performing internationally and winning numerous awards, Anikushin has played Alice Tully Hall, Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Recital Hall, Steinway Hall, and Bruno Walter Auditorium, among other local venues.
Anikushin's program on the 21st will include works by C.P.E. Bach, Chopin, and Nino Rota (piano and organ.)
Art on the Corner is a nine-year-old community-based arts ministry of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd that aims to make the arts more accessible to the community.
The suggested donation is $10 per person.
