Applauded by MusicWeb International for his “splendid playing…great skill and technical prowess,” St. Louis native Dominic Cheli‘s career is rapidly advancing. In addition to winning the CAG Competition in 2017, he was named a winner of the Music Academy of the West Concerto Competition and released his debut CD on the Naxos label, featuring the music of Muzio Clementi. Highlights of his 2018–19 season include performances at the Mostly Mozart Festival and Ravinia Festival, in addition to his Weill Recital Hall debut with CAG. Dominic made his Disney Hall concerto debut in Los Angeles last October with the Colburn Orchestra, led by Valery Gergiev.
