Renowned concert pianist Conrad Tao to debut the Reno Philharmonic’s new E. L. Wiegand Grand Piano at Classix Five.
Music director Laura Jackson and the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra present special guest pianist Conrad Tao in Classix Five. The concert will feature Stravinsky’s Petrushka and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, op. 30. Classix Five will also showcase the new E. L. Wiegand Grand Piano.
Tao, the only classical musician on Forbes’ 2011 “30 Under 30″ list of people changing the world, is just 19 years old but has been playing the piano for almost as many years, performing his first recital at the age of four. Since then, Tao has been performing with orchestras across the United States and around the world. As an accomplished composer, he has been commissioned by the Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Dallas Symphony.
