"I feel so privileged to be a part of NYPS, and grateful to Elena, who has allowed me to grow as a musician and pursue my passion in ways I didn’t expect I would be able to when I left school."
"Before joining NYPS I struggled to find a good reason to engage with music dynamically, and my playing was at best rote and uninspired. I’m very grateful to NYPS for raising the bar. The combination of Elena’s artistic instincts, the level of members’ playing and the sophistication of the concert venues creates a high standard from which I’ve truly benefited."
“It’s been a unique and rewarding journey with NYPS for the past several years. Thanks to Elena and NYPS that I would have the chance to deeply engage with music, which I’ve never imagined before. The intellectual and artistic capacity of the musicians here is truly amazing, and that has motivated me to become a better version of myself, both musically and professionally, every single day.”
“New York Piano Society is the closest thing to professional level performing available to me. Because of my love for classical music and lifetime’s work to be a good pianist, I owe it to myself to sustain a high level of competence in my playing, which only performing preparation can ensure.”
“It’s always rewarding to see and hear these performers who have reached other heights in their professions.”
“Every single concert was above and beyond my expectations”
“An astounding display of virtuoso performances”
“Amazed at the quality of amateurs, people who obviously chose not to pursue the music performance profession but were trained for it.”
