Experience pianist Conrad Tao’s phenomenal artistry in Mozart’s eloquent Piano Concerto No. 24. Not yet 30, the Detroit Free Press proclaims Tao “owns a place among the world’s virtuosos.” Guest conductor Michal Nesterowicz  leads music of his countryman, the late Polish film and concert composer, Wojciech Kilar. The evening ends with Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 “Scottish”, inspired by a trip to Edinburgh and the chapel ruins of Mary, Queen of Scots.

"Tao’s ability to get around a keyboard—with either nimble agility or pounding intensity as required—is something to marvel over." –San Francisco Chronicle

“The kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music” –New York Magazine

An artist of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” –The New York Times
