Sandor Feher

Sandor Feher has performed as a recitalist, chamber musician and collaborator in venues across the US and Europe.  Beginning playing piano at the age of 5, his studies started with a number of private teachers in the west suburbs of Chicago.  He partook in the ISMTA (Illinois State Music Teachers Association) music training program and participated in several local competitions around Chicago, winning prizes at many, including the Geneva Swedish Days Music Festival and the West Suburban Scholarship Contest in Illinois.  For high school, he moved to Europe to attend the Béla Bartók Music Conservatory in Budapest, Hungary. It was there, and later, during his BA studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music that he had the opportunity to delve into the music of Hungarian composers such as Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály. This allowed him to gain deeper insight into the folk music tradition of Hungary that these composers synthesized into their works. Mr. Feher developed a special interest in the music of Bartók, and performed his works for chamber and piano in many venues within Hungary, including the Bartók Memorial House, the Liszt Academy of Music, the Palace of Arts in Budapest and the International Bartók Seminar and Festival in Szombathely.  Mr. Feher is currently finishing his master's degree in piano performance at Chicago's College of Performing Arts in Roosevelt University and has become a regular performer in the Chicagoland area.
