Our 2017 Silver Medalist returns to make his first Cliburn Concerts appearance, after a debut season that included a recital tour in Hawaii and across the country; a return to his alma mater, the University of Houston, for its annual Texas Music Festival; and an acclaimed engagement with the Minnesota Orchestra deemed “highly auspicious…marked by poise [&] technical brilliance” by the Star-Tribune. A native of Minneapolis, Kenny Broberg won prizes at the Hastings, Sydney, Seattle, and New Orleans International Piano Competitions before taking home second in Fort Worth last year. He currently studies with 2001 Cliburn Gold Medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch.
