The four students are Emily Cattani of Manitowoc, a senior majoring in music; Lydia Matthews of Kiel, a senior majoring in performance and pedagogy; Kelly Koeppen of St. Nazianz, a sophomore majoring in performance and pedagogy; and Beverly Mark of Two Rivers, a spring graduate with a certificate in piano pedagogy.

They are students of the Silver Lake College piano studios of Dr. Diana Shapiro and Dr. Stanislava Varshavski.

During the spring 2017 Silver Lake College Symposium, the four students were selected as one of two best presentations overall.

“They were very encouraged by this first success, and I suggested they apply for the state conference,” Dr. Shapiro said. “This event is an opportunity to put piano and Silver Lake College’s music program on the state map.”
