Pianist Julia Russ, recipient of the 2016 Steinway Top Teacher Award, is on the piano faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music Preparatory and Continuing Education Division. Julia has concertized extensively as both a soloist and as a collaborative pianist. She has worked with, performed with, and/or coached by Concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra, William Preucil; violinists Midori, Ivan Zenaty, and Paul Kantor; the violist of the Juilliard String Quartet, Roger Tapping; and cellist Sharon Robinson of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio.

Julia serves on the piano faculty of CIM's prestigious summer program for talented young pianists, Summer Sonata. She is also a highly sought after adjudicator in piano competitions in both the United States and Canada.

Program: “Since the theme of this season is “Rootedness”, I have gone back to the very base of every classical pianist’s program planning: choosing a piece from each of the following period: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary. This also provides me the opportunity to give my audience a “crash course” of the Western Music History.” Julia Russ, Classical Pianist
