UNRIVER, Ore. (KTVZ) — The historic Sunriver Resort Great Hall sets the stage for two groundbreaking performances next month featuring Ukrainian Dmytro Choni, one of the best young pianists in the world. 

Choni, a brand new medalist of the Cliburn International Piano Competition, joins the Sunriver Music Festival Orchestra in a stunningly beautiful piano-centric evening on Monday, August 15th and performs solo on Tuesday, August 16th. Visit now for tickets. 

Choni began piano in his native Kyiv (Ukraine) when he was 4 years old. Now, a medalist of multiple international competitions, he says, "Music is always kind of a hideaway from what’s going on in the world. Through the music, you can try to project the best possible emotion, the optimism, the hope.” Experience this hope August 15-16 in Sunriver.  

3 CHANCES TO EXPERIENCE CHONI IN ACTION at the Sunriver Resort Great Hall: 

- Aug 15, 7:30 pm as featured soloist with Artistic Director & Conductor Brett Mitchell and the Festival Orchestra in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3. Pre-concert talk with the Maestro at 6:30.
