Friday, May 11, 8:00 PM | Wharton Center for the Performing Arts, East Lansing
Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, 2018 Gilmore Young Artist Elliot Wuu has had to withdraw from his appearance on Friday, May 11, 2018. Our 2014 Gilmore Young Artist, Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner has agreed to step in for this special performance.
Having just returned from an extensive tour of Europe and Abu Dhabi, this accomplished young pianist will be performing Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto with the Lansing Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Timothy Muffitt.
In addition to being the 2014 Gilmore Young Artist, Mr. Sanchez-Werner received the Atlantic Council Young Global Citizen Award recognizing his dedication to social action through music in such countries as Iraq, Rwanda, France, Canada, and the United States. “Poetic, electrifying,” “mesmerizing artistry and extraordinary ability to communicate,” “masterful technique,” “exquisite lyricism,” “a gifted virtuoso,” have lauded 21-year-old Sanchez-Werner for performances that have stirred the intellect and humanity of his audiences on five continents.
