In its second year now, Parkway United Church of Christ’s “Music That Matters” series is bringing the community together around music while raising funds for projects of justice and mercy in the Winston-Salem area.

Dmitri Shteinberg was born in Moscow into a family of musicians. He studied at the Gnessin Special School of Music. As the Soviet Union was collapsing, the family emigrated to Israel, where he continued his studies at the Thelam Yellin School for the Arts and the Tel-Aviv Rubin Academy of Music, earning a BM in 1999. He later studied at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, where he received his Master’s and Doctoral degrees. Shteinberg is a music educator and has taught at the Harlem School of Music, the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he currently teaches. His program on Sunday will include works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Chopin.

The final concert of the “Music that Matters” series is scheduled for Sunday, May 1st, 2016, 3:00pm and will feature Mary Siebert, singer, songwriter and storyteller. The concert will benefit Wentz Memorial United Church of Christ Food Pantry.

The series celebrates its second concert of the 2015-2016 season this Sunday, February 21st with a performance by pianist Dmitri Shteinberg. The concert begins at 3:00pm at Parkway United Church of Christ at 2151 Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem. Suggested ticket donation is $15, and proceeds will benefit AIDS Care Service (ACS) of Winston-Salem.
