Born in 1986 in Durham, North Carolina, Andrew Tyson is emerging as a distinctive and intriguing musical voice. The opportunity to perform at the Lied Center of Kansas is one of three special prizes he was awarded for achievements during his YCA audition. Tyson has worked with many orchestras and string quartets, including the Brentano String Quartet, which will also be performing at the Lied Center. He is currently a master's student at The Juilliard School, studying with Robert McDonald.
About Young Concert Artists
Young Concert Artists (YCA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering and developing the careers of extraordinary musicians. Since 1961, YCA has launched the careers of many artists, such as pianist Murray Perahia and soprano Dawn Upshaw. Each year, artists take part in the YCA International Auditions in New York and Germany. Winners of the auditions are selected by a jury of distinguished musicians on the criteria of exceptional musicianship, virtuosity, individuality, projection as a performer and promise. The winners tour, as part of the YCA Series, in cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. Winners also receive additional performance opportunities based on their playing prowess during the audition process.
Other Young Concert Artists who are performing this season at the Lied Center include Robert Belinić, guitar and Narek Arutyunian, clarinet.
Young Concert Artists alumni that have performed at the Lied Center include Christopher O'Riley, Richard Goode, Sasha Cooke, Pinchas Zuckerman, Eugenia Zuckerman, The Tokyo String Quartet, Emanuel Ax, The St. Lawrence String Quartet and Dan Coleman.
