2014 Artist Spotlight – Angelina Gadeliya
Angelina Gadeliya is an engaging performer, and we are incredibly excited to help welcome her back to Sioux Falls, where she spent many years in her youth. She has performed many times in the area, including previously with Dakota Sky and the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra. Also a gifted educator, Dr. Gadeliya currently serves as piano faculty at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, as well as at the Colorado Springs Conservatory of Music.
Angelina completed three seasons with the prestigious Ensemble ACJW- a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and The Weill Music Institute. As a member of the ensemble, she was actively involved in educational outreach in New York City, and performed regularly at Carnegie Hall as well as at the Juilliard School. She and her colleagues from Ensemble ACJW have formed a new ensemble, Decoda, an exciting new collective seeking to reinvigorate the world of classical music through revelatory audience engagement, community outreach, and innovative programming.
Angelina will join us for our Salon Recital on Monday, June 23, will present a solo Recital on Thursday, June 26, help teach with our Young Artist Program, as well as presenting with a panel of artists, educators, and administrators for the Seminar on Friday, June 27, titled The State of the Arts.
Angelina gave an incredible performance in 2012 at Dakota Sky, which included the Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante, Op. 22 by Frédéric Chopin. You can watch a different recording of the same piece by her from that summer below:
