Evelyn Miller Young Pianist Series: Katherine Benson

$25, available in lobby
Students: Free

Young American pianist Katherine Benson is quickly emerging as an important artistic figure of her generation through her “stunning” (ArtsKnoxville) performances and passion for arts leadership.

A native of Jonesborough, TN, Katherine has performed as a soloist across the USA and abroad in Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand. Katherine has additionally garnered numerous triumphs in the competition sphere, having won top prizes in the Seattle, Kerikeri, Walled City Music, Teresa Carreño, and Thousand Islands International Piano Competitions, as well as the grand prize of the 2020 George R. Johnson Concerto Competition. Katherine was most recently one of only four finalists in the prestigious Heida Hermanns International Music Competition.

In 1980, Evelyn Miller, pianist, devoted teacher, and visionary, realized her dream to establish a concert series for young (under 35) international artists – the YOUNG PIANIST SERIES. Since its beginning, more than 110 concert pianists from all over the world have performed on this unique series.
