Guest Artist – Maui Chamber Orchestra

Mira Feldman, Piano — Mar 2020

Feldman has captivated audiences in Canada, France, Israel, United Kingdom, United States, and Russia with her intelligent expertise and fervent interpretations of piano repertoire.                                                 

After graduating with honors from the Special Music School for gifted children and later the Kazan State Conservatory, she began her career as a piano teacher at the Kazan Performing Arts Academy, while also performing as a piano recitalist and soloist with several symphony orchestras.                                                                               

In 1993 Feldman immigrated to Israel, where she had to retire from the piano to pursue a new career in international business.                     

In 2001 destiny presented Feldman with a new opportunity—she moved to the United States, where she re-established her reputation as a classical musician and an educator. While teaching at the Visual and Performing Arts Academy, Florida, and later at University of Hawaii, Maui College, Feldman presented keyboard solo performances and master classes in Russia, the United States, France, Israel, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Feldman maintains a residency at the University of South Carolina, where she annually conducts master classes, lectures and performs solo recitals.

For several years, Feldman’s live piano performances and interviews have appeared on various radio and TV stations. Since her relocation to Hawaiʻi, she is a regular guest at Mana’o radio (KMNO 91.7FM) with her talks about different aspects of music.

Feldman is the Founder and Musical Director of the Maui Outstanding Piano Amateurs Festival (2016) which organizes recitals, master classes, and soirees for amateur pianists from around the world.

Feldman’s ability to recognize the talents and her commitment to nurture young musicians are obvious reasons for her being invited to join panels of jurors of various national piano competitions organized by the Music National Teachers Association, USA.

She is the recipient of many awards for her educational and artistic achievements.                                                                             

Feldman’s discography includes: Concert Favorites (Live recording, 2009), Russian Dreams (Live recording, 2009), and Musical Collage (2007).
