Cameron’s New Music Festival to feature pianist/composer Keith Kirchoff

Lawton_Press Release_Keith Kirchoff has been called one of the most unique artists of his generation. As a pianist and composer, he works towards enhancing the status of classical music in American culture by educating audiences before and during performances, lecturing internationally, and stressing the importance of modern music to keep classical music alive and current.

He has appeared with orchestras throughout the U.S. performing a wide range of concerti, including the Boston premier of Charles Ives' "Emerson Concerto," the world premier of Matthew McConnell¹s "Concerto for Toy Piano," and more traditional works by Tchaikovsky and Chopin. He has also been a featured soloist in music festivals including the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS), the Oregon Festival of American Music, the Norfolk New Music Workshop, Ives and His World, and The eXtensible Toy Piano Project. The co-founder of the new music ensemble "Siren Agenda," Kirchoff also performs regularly with the Callithumpian Consort, Boston¹s premier modern music ensemble.

The winner of the 2006 Steinway Society Piano Competition and the 2005 John Cage Award, Kirchoff has won numerous other awards including the Silver Lake International Piano Concerto Competition, the Saint Paul Piano Teachers Association Competition, the Thursday Musical Competition, and the Saint Cloud Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition.
