Pansky Concerto Competition Winners Announced

February 1, 2017

Two young outstanding musicians, one a student from Green Bay and the other a senior at Lawrence University in Appleton are winners of the biennial Miroslav Pansky Memorial solo competition sponsored by the Civic Symphony of Green Bay. Auditions were held this past November at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Winners were chosen from 21 participants entered and judged as high school or college students.

The first place award in the high school division went to Liam Mayo, 17, of Green Bay. Emily Hauer of Appleton took second place honors. The top winner among college entrants was Derrick Hahn, a senior at Lawrence University. Evan Newman, also from Lawrence University, placed second. All four contestants won cash prizes. As first-place winners, Hahn and Mayo will be featured soloists with the Civic Symphony at its "Future Shining Stars" concert on February 18, 2017.

Hahn is a senior Piano Performance major at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music, where he studies with Anthony Padilla. This year he also placed first in the Wisconsin state division of MTNA Young Artist as well as the Lawrence Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition. Recipient of an Accompanying Fellowship at Lawrence, he served as rehearsal and orchestral pianist for opera productions during the past two years.

Last summer, he was awarded a vocal coaching internship at the Oberlin in Italy program in Arezzo, Tuscany, and performed to great acclaim at the Vianden International Music Festival in Luxembourg. Following his graduation this spring, he plans to pursue a master's in Piano Performance. Hahn will perform the first movement of Bela Bartok's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Mayo will perform the 1st movement of Felix Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 in g minor, Op. 25.

Mayo is a homeschooled 17 year old student from Green Bay. He studies piano with Professor Anthony Padilla at Lawrence Conservatory of Music in Appleton. Liam has been selected in the Division Finals as an alternate in the Music Teachers National Association Senior Piano Competition and as an honorable mention in the finals of the Schubert Club Junior Piano Competition. Most recently, he won honorable mention in the Bolz Young Artist competition, and first place in the Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra Discovery Artist Competition, and the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Young Artist Concerto Competition.

He also has studied violin with Professor Wen-Lei Gu, also at Lawrence Conservatory, and chamber music with Carol Leybourn at the Lawrence Academy of Music, as both a pianist and a violinist. Besides music, Liam has a passion for writing and acting. His latest roles include the Nutcracker Prince with the Makaroff Youth Ballet and Dickon in the Cavalry Players production of the Secret Garden. He is the pianist for the Makaroff Youth Ballet.

The competition is open to young performers who live or study in Northeastern Wisconsin. It was established in 2008 in honor of Pansky, who died in 2007. He was conductor for 23 years of the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra. Pansky was also founder and artistic director of the Pamiro Opera Company, which staged some 30 full-scale, professional opera productions over a period of 20 years. In designating the event in Pansky's memory, the Civic Symphony board took particular notice of the inspiration and encouragement he provided to young musicians through his work with the youth orchestras he directed for many years.

Concerts are presented at the Historic Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay.

A partnership with the Wildlife Sanctuary seemed only natural with an animal-themed concert! A 7:00 start time, and a Family Ticket rate, make this the perfect concert for your entire family to attend and enjoy.

The composers took part in the Composer Apprentice National Outreach Endeavor (CANOE), that was created as a follow-up program to the Native American Composer Apprentice Project, founded by Brent Michael Davids.

Through this program, Davids has taught composition to high school students in several cities and nearby reservations, resulting in student-composed string quartets. The Wisconsin-based CANOE initiative includes students from Bowler and Gresham High Schools, and an adult from the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. Click Here For more information.
