You are invited to join us for a celebratory evening of excellence, passion and discovery as the ANU School of Music celebrates the achievements of 2017 with a Classical Music Gala Concert, featuring recent appointment to the School of Music, Mike Cheng-Yu Lee, Forte-pianist.
Fortepianist Mike Cheng-Yu Lee’s performances have been described as “portraying integrity, purity, complexity and truth… with balance and control that are breathtaking.” Peter Jacobi of the Bloomington Herald Times writes: “As a keyboard performer, Lee really is a major talent, no doubt about it…[his] Mozart was absolutely radiant, a lesson in refinement mixed with deep devotion.”
Mike will perform with the newly formed ANU Festival Orchestra which includes the members of Tinalley String Quartet, Faculty, Alumni and students of the ANU School of Music.
The newly formed ANU Piano Trio will also make their debut: Tor Frømyhr, violin, David Pereira, cello and Sonya Lifschitz, piano.
The program will feature pieces by Suk, Dvořák and the Concerto No. 14 K. 449 by W.A. Mozart.
The event is open public. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketek. Dress code smart casual.
