Guilford Station Arts Proudly Presents:
Noah Hardaway, Piano
Dr. Byron Jones, Tenor
Robert Schuman: Dichterliebe, Op. 48
Robert Schuman: Humoreske, Op. 20
Noah has worked with luminaries from over a dozen eminent conservatories, including those in Moscow, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto. Noah was also a finalist in the Houston Symphony League Concerto Competition and the Frances Walton Competition in Seattle, and was a semifinalist at the Julia Crane and Arthur Fraser International Piano Competitions. He has appeared on WUSF 89.7 FM and in the Houston Chronicle, and received scholarships for two years from Music Doing Good, a Houston-based organization devoted to expanding the role of music in local communities.
Noah also has a habit of curating innovative projects, including assembling large student ensembles, hosting weekly radio programs, and leading interdisciplinary performances. At Shenandoah University’s 2018 Student Performance Week, Noah received a grant to direct and perform in the Virginia premiere of Der gelbe Klang (The yellow sound), a stage composition for contemporary ensemble and dancers with music by Alfred Schnittke and stage directions by Vassily Kandinsky.
Noah is fortunate to count as mentors Vadym Kholodenko, Pavel Nersessian, and Sergei Glavatskih, professor at Moscow Conservatory. Noah’s artistic outlook acquired new dimensions as a result of their guidance, which began in 2014 and intensified in summer 2017. The legacies of Heinrich Neuhaus and Vera Gornostaeva are a continual inspiration to Noah, and his senior thesis is the first English-language exploration of Gornostaeva’s transformative approach to the art of teaching.
After formative studies with Clive Swansbourne, Noah joined the studio of Robert Roux at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music for two years. He graduated magna cum laude from Rice with a Bachelor of Music in musicology and with Distinction in Research and Creative Works. Irish pianist and pedagogue John O’Conor has been a mentor since 2012, and in fall 2018 Noah began his master’s degree in Dr. O’Conor’s studio at Shenandoah University. Interests outside of music include photography, Russian literature, and the American West.
