The international megastar pianist Lang Lang will give a special one-night only concert, hosted by Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winning entertainer Alec Baldwin, at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium on Tuesday, October 30 at 6:30PM to raise funds for the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell and Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz artist Dee Dee Bridgewater and Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land will make special guest appearances along with other surprise performances to be announced.
Lang Lang will offer solo piano works by Frederic Chopin which are featured on his new Sony Classical recording “The Chopin Album,” that was released on October 9, 2012. For the first time ever, Joshua Bell will join him in a performance of the Grieg Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 3 in C minor, and Dee Dee Bridgewater will sing Broadway hits. Six child prodigies from three different continents, who have been supported by the Foundation in their music studies, will perform alongside Lang Lang.
The program will be followed by a gala dinner. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Lang Lang International Music Foundation, which the celebrated pianist created to enrich the lives of children through a deeper understanding and enjoyment of classical music and to inspire and financially support the next generation of musicians.
