Owen Dodds, age 21, is a rising senior in college at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he studies piano with Dmitri Shteinberg. Born in Rochester, New York, Dodds has lived in various locations in the United States and Europe, arriving in the present day as a student in Winston-Salem, NC. In 2009, Dodds began studying at the UNC School of the Arts, as an eighth grader in the high school program, with Clifton Matthews and later Dmitri Shteinberg. Since this time, Dodds has attended and performed at music festivals in Switzerland, Germany, Florida, New York, and Ukraine. He has been featured as a soloist with the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra and the National Honoured Academic Orchestra of Ukraine. Dodds is also a composer and founding member of the new music duo – Early Gray – who has just released their premier album of original music. This summer, Dodds will be competing as a finalist in the Rosen-Schaffel Young Artist’s Competition.
