If you live in France, you'll be able to see Lang Lang's

Union College concert series debut on television.

The rest of us can watch the 19-year-old piano virtuoso

in person on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. in Memorial Chapel.

A French film crew will accompany the

Chinese-born prodigy at this Union concert. They are gathering footage for

a program about Lang Lang to be broadcast on ARTE,

France's cultural television channel. The show also will be seen in

Germany and other parts of Europe, but there is no indication it will

be seen by an American audience.

The Chinese-born prodigy has become an

international sensation, filling the world's most renowned venues, including

a sold-out Carnegie Hall debut last spring.

The solo piano program includes Mendelssohn's

Fantasies, Op. 16; Schubert's Wanderer

Fantasy; Chopin's Two Nocturnes; and Liszt's

Paganini Etudes. Tickets are $20, half-price

for students, Union students free. For more information, call

388-6131 or 372-3651.
