A portion of the proceeds from the events from this year will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Moxley Manor is an indoor attraction so tickets will be valid rain or shine. For more information, visit www.moxleymanor.com or call (682) 231-1313.

2018 Cliburn Festival: the Music of Russia

February 22–25
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth 
Sixty years ago, a 23-year-old Texan went to Moscow at the height of the Cold War and came back an American hero and an international icon. The impact of Van Cliburn’s victory at the First International Tchaikovsky Competition cannot be overstated; he disregarded boundaries and brought the world together through excellent music and his signature warmth. But at the heart of this accomplishment was Van’s deep, abiding love of and connection to the music of Russia.

The festival marks the 60th Anniversary of Van Cliburn’s historic International Tchaikovsky Competition victory and will celebrate Russian music through a series of concerts that will explore the different facets of its character. Performers will include three Cliburn laureates, each of whom hail from Russia—Alexander Kobrin (2005 gold medalist), Yury Favorin (2017 finalist), and Georgy Tchaidze (2017 finalist)—to serve as artists-in-residence and help explore the masterpieces of their homeland. The Rolston String Quartet also joins them in this adventure. For more information, visit www.cliburn.org.
