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.
