Conrad Tao, piano

Longy's Pickman Hall

Seating for this performance is limited.

Conrad Tao is, quite simply, a phenomenon. The pianist and composer has been dubbed a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times. Tao is a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, and was named a Gilmore Young Artist—an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation. Celebrity Series audiences were electrified by More Forever, Tao’s stunning collaboration with dancer Caleb Teicher in January 2020. This can’t-miss concert is sure to be a landmark musical event.
