Jacob ErtlPiano faculty member Jacob Ertl will be a featured artist at the Dakota Sky International Piano Festival, to be held June 13–24, 2014, in Sioux Falls, S.D.

While in residence, Ertl will perform a solo piano recital in the Recital Series on Saturday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m. The event will be streamed live on the Dakota Sky website.

Ertl will also present a lecture in the Seminar Series entitled “Music Outreach: Training the Next Generation.” As a strong advocate of community outreach, Ertl was asked to script and perform four interactive education concerts for children: “Stories Through Music,” “Piano's Greatest Hits,” “Virtuosity vs. Lyricism,” and “Meet the Young Artists.”

As a member of the faculty for the Young Artist Program, Ertl will present a formal master class, lead discussion sessions, coach chamber music, and teach private lessons. He will also give collaborative performances in the less formal Salon Concert event.
