Eva Sharman, 17 year-old pianist from Lake Bluff,
currently studies with Tatiana Stepanova and is a
senior at Lake Forest High School. Praised for her
mature style of playing, Eva approaches music in a
way that values artistry and clarity and has worked
to develop her distinctive musical voice. Some of
Eva’s notable awards include prizes in the MYA
Walgreens National Concerto Competition, the
Granquist Competition, and in theory and
performance for the North Shore Music Teachers
Association. Eva has appeared on WFMT’s
Introductions and other programs, including WFMT’s Trailblazing Women in Music Month. An avid chamber musician, her piano Trio has won awards in the Rembrandt Chamber Competition as well as in the Midwest National and Chicago Chamber Competitions. In addition to piano, Eva is an excellent violinist serving as concertmaster of the Lake Forest High School Symphony Orchestra and as a member of the Symphony Orchestra at the Midwest Young Artists Conservatory under the direction of Dr. Allan Dennis. Eva will perform the Piano Concerto No. 2 of Beethoven and the Strings will help celebrate the holiday season with Handel’s Overture to Judas Maccabaeus, the Christmas Concerto of Corelli, and the delightful Symphony No. 5 of Schubert.
We are pleased to dedicate this Concert to the Highland Park Community Foundation which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2022. Since its inception, the Foundation has financially supported and promoted creativity by investing in programs and institutions that promote the arts and cultural participation, including the Strings, Midwest Young Artists and the Music Institute of Chicago.

"What an unbelievably wonderful concert today. It was…a gift…to everyone there. I…cannot say enough to describe it. Thank you for the privilege to hear such incredible talent." – Susan Olsen
