Pianist Ann Schein Performs in Milwaukee Ahead of Piano Arts Competition


Every two years, Milwaukee hosts Piano Arts, an internationally renowned competition for young, early career pianists. For the past week, students have been performing in a series of recitals, and soon the finalists will take the stage to compete for the top prizes.

The competition also includes a series of public events, including a performance at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center by two of this year's jurists. Ann Schein is one of those judges. Schein has had a long distinguished career and is a specialist in the music of Chopin.

She joined Lake Effect's  Bonnie North to talk about her work and what she looks for in these young competitors.
