An Announcement from the Studio of Joe Graziose

Dear Colleagues, I am pleased to announce that my student Stephen Philipps who was awarded 1st place in the “late advanced” division of the SPTF Competition was recently chosen to be a finalist at the Steinway Competition.

Stephen also won first place in The Morgan Park Summer Young People Concert Series Competition auditioning on Ravel’s Une Barque sur I’ocean…he will be the featured artist on Sunday night July 8th, at the park’s gazebo overlooking the harbor….this competition is open to music students who reside on the North Shore of Nassau County..there are 2 divisions and he won in the older 15 to 19 year old category which has the highest prize of $1,000! Morgan Park is in Glen Cove where I spent a lot of time as a child….I will have to spread the word to my old childhood friends to attend….it’s a funny way to come “full circle” there at this stage of my life…….JOE http://morganparkmusic.org/youngperformers.php
