Every two years, Milwaukee hosts Piano Arts, an internationally renowned competition for young, early career pianists. For the past week, students have been performing in a series of recitals, and soon the finalists will take the stage to compete for the top prizes.
The competition also includes a series of public events, including a performance at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center by two of this year's jurists. Ann Schein is one of those judges. Schein has had a long distinguished career and is a specialist in the music of Chopin.
She joined Lake Effect's Bonnie North to talk about her work and what she looks for in these young competitors.
