The German Consulate General of New York supports the mission embraced by GetClassical In School: Inspired by the German based Rhapsody in School initiative, GetClassical In School brings charismatic performing artists to New York classrooms. Sparking the imagination and priming young students’ ears to classical music – through an utmost personal encounter – the class is then invited to attend a concert performance by the artist.
Founded by music journalist and concert curator Ilona Oltuski, GetClassical In School brings the successful concept to New York City, and beyond. This event offers a platform to kick off GetClassical In School efforts in support of classical music appreciation, connecting participating artists and educators. GetClassical in School is a liaison between artists and schools. The initiative is an enthusiastic and generous endorsement of GetClassical In School’s mission, supported by many of the finest international musicians.

Declared a “first-class talent” and praised for her “poetic use of color and confidently expressive phrasing” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), the distinguished Taiwanese-American pianist CHING-YUN HU is recognized and acclaimed worldwide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality, and directly communicative performance style.
Ching-Yun Hu’s 2018–2019 season highlights include performances in Philadelphia, Amsterdam, Beijing and Bogotá. She gave the Asia premiere of Red Cliff, Concerto for Piano and Orchestra by Yiu-kwong Chung and the National Chinese Orchestra Taiwan, following the concerto’s world premiere with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and Dirk Brosse. She is heard in return engagements with the Evergreen Symphony Orchestra in Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor. She returns to Colombia for a residence at the Festival Internacional de Piano en Ibaque. She also embarks on an eight-city tour of China–“Ching-Yun Hu’s Silk Road Project”. Ching-Yun Hu released her latest solo album, “Ching-Yun Hu: Rachmaninoff”, in Spring of 2018. A collaboration with Philadelphia’s WRTI radio, her album received critical acclaims. The Pianist Magazine gave it “5 stars” and proclaimed it “essential listening for Rachmaninoff admirers.”
