Performance Dates

  • Wed Oct 13 2021 7:30 PM


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.
