The Florida International Piano Competition continues their Piano Concert Series on Sunday, September 19th with a performance by world-renowned concert pianist Santiago Rodriguez. He has performed internationally with leading orchestras, including the London Symphony and the Dresden Staatskapel, and nationally with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, D.C., and many more.

Santiago Rodriguez was born in C?rdenas, Cuba and began his piano studies at age four. After Castro seized power in Cuba, his parents sent Mr. Rodriguez and his younger brother to America under the care of the Catholic Charities. Two years after his arrival, he made his concert debut at age ten performing Mozart?s Piano Concerto No. 27 with the New Orleans Philharmonic. His international career was launched in 1981 when he won the Silver Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Mr. Rodriguez? unique life and artistry were profiled on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Kurault in 1993. He has also been featured numerous times on the ABC, NBC, PBS, CNN, BBC, and CBC television networks.
