Seven top Brigham Young University pianists from the School of Music will perform in the finals for the the piano division of the annual Concerto Competition Wednesday, Jan. 5, at 8 p.m in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

"In a previous event, we heard 20 students perform concerti, and chose seven of them to perform in this recital" said Scott Holden of the BYU piano faculty. "We will choose from the best of them and send them on to represent the piano area for an opportunity to perform during the Evening of Concertos with the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra."

The students — Lucy Williams, Yurika Taura, Forrest Howell, Arianne Sam, Jonathan Keith, Janessa Swenson and Camille Balleza — will perform works by Rachmaninov, Grief, Liszt, Beethoven, Khachaturian and Chopin.
