Adam Hostomsky, piano
February 27 @ 12:00 pm
Award winning classical pianist Adam Hostomsky is dedicated to bringing deep insight and virtuoso fireworks to audiences in San Diego and the world. Adam was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia and started playing piano at the age of 3 ½ under government tutelage. At age 8, his family settled in La Jolla and continued his musical development. He studied with Betty Oberacker at University of California Santa Barbara and received a Master of Fine Arts Piano Performance from California Institute of Arts in 2005 where he studied with Peter Miyamoto and Liam Viney.
In addition to the standard repertoire Adam Hostomsky is involved in the discovery of unheard music from past centuries. Unique performances include half-tone compositions of Czech composer Alois Haba, Los Angeles Disney’s REDCAT Theater in 2005, and major works of Ricardo Castro 2016–2020. He is a popular local performer in San Diego with over 100 concerts.
Free concerts at noon every other Monday from fall through spring . . . no wonder the Mini-Concerts are the longest-running and one of the most popular classical music series at the library! This series was founded by Glenna Hazleton in 1970 at the Athenaeum, and has been going strong ever since. The concerts feature both local and touring musicians, prize-winning students, university music faculty members, local chamber ensembles. . . and the repertoire also includes jazz, folk and world music. There are no reservations, no tickets . . . just line up at the side door of the Athenaeum before noon. (Donations are always welcome!) Mini-Concerts take place every other Monday at noon and last about an hour.
The concerts will be in person at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. There are no physical tickets for these events. Doors open at 11:50 a.m. Seating is first-come; first-served. These events will be presented in compliance with State of California and County of San Diego health regulations as applicable at the time of each concert.
