Alvise Pascucci is a second year Artist Diploma student in piano performance from Italy.

“Ball State has been providing all the necessities to obtain the maximum preparation as a pianist: 2 lessons per week with an outstanding teacher, very nice Steinway pianos in all the practice rooms are always available to me, and a wonderful concert hall. It’s very important to have everything available and definitely is allowing me to focus on my piano formation, and having this kind of tranquility stimulates me to play better.”

“I’m looking forward to the concerto performance with BSSO. It is the dream of most pianists to perform the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 with the orchestra. I worked very hard for it, but I’m sure it will be absolutely worth it!”

Alvise is one of the Graduate Concerto Competition winners and performed with the Ball State Symphony Orchestra on April 23!  📸: @jkwcreative
