Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide as both a pianist and composer. He has been praised as a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times. A recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Tao has emerged as a thought-provoking artist and a galvanizing leader among the new generation of classical musicians. For his anticipated Meany debut, Tao takes the listener on a journey through the sonic worlds of compositional voices from the past and the immediate present, including a newly commissioned piece from the pianist himself.

Masking and proof of vaccination (or negative COVID-19 test) are required for everyone attending Meany Center events.
