Chan made his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 12 and became a recording artist soon afterwards. He plays a wide range of musical genres and recorded with the legendary singer Roberta Flack at age 13. Two years later he released a CD of the live World Premiere performance of the Quadruple Concerto – ‘Velesslavitsa’ by Alexander Prior. He was featured in the Peabody Award winning HBO Television documentary, “The Music In Me.” the Grammy Award winning radio show, “From The Top,” NPR’s Performance Today with Fred Child and was one of the featured artists of the acclaimed 3-part British Television documentary, “The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies.” The evening’s concert begins with Wagner’s majestic and spirited Die Meistersinger Overture and concludes with Sibelius’ bold and unconventional Symphony No. 2 in D major, op. 43.
