Cem Oslu, Turkish pianist,  Concert at Annisquam Village Church – Sunday 8/17/14

WHERE:  Annisquam Village Church, 820 Washington Street, Gloucester
WHEN:  Sunday, August 17, 7:30 PM  
TICKETS: At the door only $15 / $10. Students 
INFORMATION:  978.283.6416 or 978.281.0376

Hard on the heels of a brilliant stint as Music Director of the Annisquam Village Players’ production of “Peter Pan,” 21-year-old Turkish pianist Cem Oslu turns his talents to a mostly classical concert at the Annisquam Village Church, Sunday, August 17. Pushing the ivories in another direction is nothing new for this young prodigy. Born in 1992 in Adana, Turkey, Oslu started his music education with piano lessons at age 12.  In only a year, he had won a full scholarship to Bilkent University’s Faculty of Music and Performing Arts where, for five years, he had the opportunity to study with Sanem Berkalp, Hande Dalkilic, Karl-Andreas Kolly, Oxana Yablonskaya, Edna Golandsky and Olga Kern.

In 2009, Oslu was awarded Third Prize in the Kamuran Gundemir Piano Competition, and later that year performed the Grieg Piano Concerto in A Minor with the Bilkent Sypmhonic Orchestra (the Turkish “BSO,” in Ankara), conducted by Isin Metin. He was also invited to perform in the 10th Antalya International Piano Competition and at the Musica Mundi International Chamber Music Festival in Belgium. In 2010, he performed Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.1 with the Bursa Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ahmet Taviloglu. Later that year he was accepted to Vienna Conservatory where he studied for two years.

At Berklee College of Music, Oslu’s concentration has been Film Scoring and Electronic Production & Design.  In 2013 he was awarded First Prize in the MTNA (Music Teacher’s National Association) Compositions Competition on both state and regional levels, and Second Prize at the national level.

Oslu moves to Los Angeles in September, with film work in his sights. Terry Sands, Director of the Annisquam Village Players, says, “Peter Pan might have stayed a boy forever…but Cem Oslu has already hit 21, and we’re going to say ‘We heard him when…’ He’s got a great future ahead of him, and we were lucky to get such a talent for our play. This concert will be cream on the top!”

The concert will include piano music of Bach, Chopin, Schumann, and Scriabin.  Oslu promises to play a bit of Turkish music on the harpsichord (with its buff stop imitating the sound of the oud!), and a composition of his own, as well. The historic Annisquam Village Church is at 820 Washington Street in Gloucester (corner of Washington and Leonard Streets). General admission is at the door only: $15. / Students $10.  One performance: Sunday, August 17.

. I thanked “Sista” Felicia. She made my grand kids happy campers with her recipe of the toasted Genoa Salami with crème fraîche. Every time they come to Gloucester I have to make that for them (5 and 3 Years Old)

Video From Craig Kimberley-

Craig Writes-

Just before the beach was about to fill up, and the seine boat and greasy pole finals were to begin, I happened upon Gloucester native Dominic Giovinco. I approached him and asked “What does the Fiesta mean to you?” I have to say it was a lucky moment for me and my camera, and for anyone that watches. Then we went into the heritage of the Greasy Pole and being a pole walker. Enjoy this and share alike!

Absolutely Adorable!

These children were getting antsy as they waited for the parade to start. Keeping clean in  Fiesta whites isn’t easy when you’re a kid. But, under Tally’s where the balloons were being inflated seemed like a great place to hang out.  They posed briefly for my shot. To them, the balloons were much more fun!
