“Ideally located in the heart of downtown Chicago, Roosevelt University is situated within easy walking distance of the Chicago Symphony, the Art Institute and Lyric Opera. Being in one of the world's most exciting cities, there are ample opportunities for our pianists to network, to perform in a variety of venues and attend concerts of the highest echelon of performers. We offer a weekly performance seminar that allows students to play frequently in front of their peers while faculty engage them in discussions on a large variety of pianistic and musical issues.”
