ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Public Library’s Sunday concert series continues at 2 p.m. Jan. 13 with a special performance by international concert pianist Ani Gogova.
Gogova’s career began early in her native Bulgaria when she won all major piano competitions, including the most prestigious National Music Competition “Svetoslav Obretenov” as well as top prizes in several international competitions for young pianists, according to a news release from the St. Charles Public Library. Since then, Gogova has appeared in solo recitals and concerts with orchestras in Bulgaria, Italy, Serbia, England, and throughout the U.S.
Gogova holds a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and has been living in Chicago since 2003, when she was appointed at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, becoming the youngest professor at the time to join the world-renowned faculty of the Music Conservatory.
This event is part of the library’s Sunday Concert series, featuring a wide variety of live musical performances. This performance is funded through donations to the St. Charles Public Library Foundation.
