America/Beautiful is a project by Korean-born American pianist and arts advocate Min Kwon, in which she has commissioned a diverse group of more than 70 of today’s leading American composers to each compose a variation on America the Beautiful. The recital will feature excerpts from this project and will be followed by a piano master class for SMU students. The public is welcome to attend and observe both the recital and the class. Ms. Kwon excels in a versatile career that encompasses concerti, solo recitals and chamber music appearances, while in high demand around the world as a pedagogue, arts advocate and administrator. She has performed in over 60 countries on seven continents and all 50 U.S. states. In addition to her international concert career, she has served as professor of piano at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University since 2002, and is the founder and director of the Center for Musical Excellence (CME), a nonprofit dedicated to mentoring and supporting gifted young musicians.
