Adam Gyorgy is the kind of rare mind that enters the world once in a lifetime. A mind that sees the world from a totally different perspective, and through that perspective changes the world.
According to Gyorgy’s official biography posted on his website, his unique perspective originally worried his parents and caused them to go to the doctor with him. However, careful observation helped them to eventually see that it wasn’t that Gyorgy was having trouble understanding the world, it was that he saw it so fundamentally differently, upside down in fact.
Very early on this perspective led him to the piano and classical music. In this arena Gyorgy finally found a place in which his view of the world could flourish. Today Gyorgy plays with regularity at the New York Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium.
Just last year he played in the opening ceremony of the UEFA European Football Championship. Beyond taking classical music out of the concert hall and presenting it in a completely contemporary environment, he also played with a choreographed display of hundreds of dancers and participants. His performance was more than just piano performance, but included soccer juggling and an enormous and unforgettable piano. Before more than 300 million audience members, Gyorgy was able to translate classical music to something relevant and applicable to the modern sports enthusiast.
Gyorgy, beyond being an incredible musician, is also a philanthropist. It is this second role that will bring him to the Wheeler Opera House in March to raise money for the VITAL foundation. This non-profit is dedicated to rescuing at risk youth and child prostitutes in India. Through providing safe refuge, food and the opportunity for an education, VITAL is able to offer these children a second chance at life.
Hilary Clinton, Laura Bush and Madeline Albright have all worked with VITAL in some capacity and sought to support the objectives and goals of VITAL throughout recent years.
On March 2nd Gyorgy will perform in conjunction with a presentation for VITAL. Doors will open at 6p.m. with cocktails, hors d’ouevres and a silent auction. After a brief presentation about the work VITAL performs within the Indian community, Gyorgy will play a variety of Franz Liszt’s pieces including, La Campanella, Hungarian Rhapsody no.2 in addition to a number of other pieces. The evening will close with a champagne and chocolate reception as well as a meet and greet with Gyorgy and with Yvoone Neuman from VITAL.
