Acclaimed by music lovers the world over, Li set to bring her soaring classical style to the Triad for a single live performance on Thursday evening, November 5.
"High Point, North Carolina – Delivering adjectives any concert-goer thrives on – captivating, powerful, passionate, exquisite – the Triad will be treated to an evening of musical excitement on Thursday, November 5, as pianist Ang Li takes command of the stage at the High Point Theatre. A multifaceted virtuoso, Li’s youth, talent, personality and audience appeal make her one of the world’s rising classical piano stars. Featuring some of the most loved selections from a classical American repertoire, such as Earl Wild’s arrangement of “Embraceable You” (originally by George Gershwin), musicians from the School of the Arts NC will also collaborate with Miss Li in this performance.
Ang Li made her first public appearance at Beijing Concert Hall at age six. At age thirteen, she made her orchestral debut with the Little Orchestra Society of New York at Avery Fisher Hall. She has also performed with the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Staten Island Symphony, City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, American Academy of Conducting Orchestra, and one month prior to performing at Avery Fisher Hall, she made her orchestral debut with the Manhattan School of Music Repertory Orchestra. Ms. Li holds a Bachelor’s Degree from The Curtis Institute of Music, a Master’s Degree from The Juilliard School and an Artist Diploma from Texas Christian University.
Ranked among the world’s top 30 pianists by the prestigious Van Cliburn Foundation in 2009, and the recipient of numerous honors and awards, Ms. Li performs regularly throughout North America, Europe and Asia. She has appeared at all three biggies – Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center – the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Ruïnekerk of Bergen in the Netherlands, Hong Kong City Hall, Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing, among others. With huge audience appeal and breath-taking talent, she remains dedicated to inspiring audiences of all ages to develop a taste for classical music, a genre rarely heard by the youth of today.
“Ang Li’s music, together with her overwhelming charm and spirit, allows her to soar to unimaginable heights,” says Theatre Director David Briggs. “And she doesn’t go alone, she skillfully brings her audience along for the ride!” Tickets are $15-$20, available by calling (336) 887-3001 or online at www.highpointtheatre.com."
