The festival recital debut of 2012 Gilmore Young Artist George Li follows a whirlwind year of concert appearances for the first place winner of the 2010 Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York. The 16-year-old pianist performed more than 25 recitals in 2011 making debuts in New York, Boston, Washington and Vancouver. In June, Li performed a solo recital for a State Dinner at the White House. He also toured with the NEC Youth Philharmonic Orchestra in Europe this past year performing in major venues in Vienna and Prague. Following Li’s New York debut in November, the New York Times praised his “dexterous technique,” saying that Li’s performance showed “elegance and wit beyond his years.”
