“Lang Lang is a rock star.? – The Wall Street Journal
The hottest artist on the classical music planet? (The New York Times) returns to Memorial Hall.
Lang Lang has played sold-out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world. He has the honor of being the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic and all of the top American orchestras.
Following Lang Lang?s 2008 performance at Beijing?s Opening Ceremony for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, he was seen as a symbol of the youth and future of China. That same year, Lang Lang was also featured alongside jazz great Herbie Hancock at the Grammy Awards for a jaw-dropping live broadcast performance. In 2009, Lang Lang appeared in Time 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Classical music performances are made possible by The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. We thank the Trustees for their visionary generosity.
Please note: student tickets for this performance are sold out.
