Pianist Thomas Steigerwald, who performed on Show 185 in San Antonio, Texas, will be attending Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York this fall. Thomas will be studying with Douglas Humpherys and has received the highest level of scholarship that Eastman offers!
As the winner of the 2011 Future Stars Competition, Thomas will be performing with the San Antonio Symphony on May 22. He will play the third movement of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
His mother writes, “His experience with performing for From the Top was instrumental in establishing confidence in himself.” (Thanks Mrs. Steigerwald!)
Congrats to Thomas, and good luck on May 22!
