Art of all forms Exhibition Finale

The Venetian Arts Society, for the Art for Art’s Sake  exhibition finale, is proud and honored to present the brilliant young Ukrainian pianist, Sofiya Uryvayeva, to the Fort Lauderdale community!

Ms. Uryvayeva has the prestigious distinction of being granted permanent residency in the United States by the US Government based on “superlative achievements in the field of music,” a rare privilege reserved for individuals of extraordinary ability, recognizing these honorees as ‘the best of the in their field of endeavor.” She earned a Doctorate Degree in Piano Performance from The Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany,  a Masters Diploma in Fine Arts, Piano Performance University of Music, Freiburg, Germany, and a Bachlor in Music – Odessa State Nezhdanova Academy of Fine Art.

At the young age of 29, Sofiya has received numerous international awards and prizes as a virtuosa pianist and interpreter of the great master composers such as Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff, as well as an impressive personal connection with the repertoire of the most acclaimed contemporary East European composers.

Most recently Sofiya was employed by the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra as orchestra pianist with YouTube. Her YouTube channel has become very popular in classical music around the world, with more than 40 current videos of my live performances. The channel has already garnered 135,000 views and is acclaimed internationally.

We look forward to seeing you there!
