Join the gifted pianist Ching-Yun Hu in concert

About this Event

Join the gifted pianist, 2008 Rubinstein competition winner, PYRA Festival founder and artistic director Ching-Yun Hu in concert! Inspired by the German-based Rhapsody in School initiative, GetClassical In School brings charismatic performing artists to New York classrooms. Sparking the imagination and priming young students' ears to classical music – through an utmost personal encounter – the class is then invited to attend a concert performance by the artist.

“During my several years of participating with Rhapsody in School in Germany, I had the most meaningful encounters with young students, who were curious to learn – and hear – about my art.” -Avi Avital (internationally rewarded mandolinist)

Ching-Yun Hu

Declared a “first-class talent” and praised for her “poetic use of color and confidently expressive phrasing” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), the distinguished Taiwanese-American pianist CHING-YUN HU is recognized and acclaimed worldwide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality, and directly communicative performance style.

Ching-Yun Hu’s concert career has flourished with a host of engagements on five continents after winning the top prize at the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she was also awarded the Audience Favorite Prize. Immediately after, she was engaged for a seven-city tour across Israel and a special invitation from the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 on only a week’s notice. A year later, she won the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York City.

The concert comprises compositions created by Schubert, Liszt, Schumann, Jeremy Gill, Alkan and Chopin. It is featured by an onstage interview, introducing the artist and her participation with GetClassical In School, followed by a reception.
