Pianist Lio Kuok-Wai: Midday Scholarship Benefit Concert

April 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pianist Lio Kuok-Wai performs at the Brattleboro Music Center Monday, April 15, at 1 p.m. in a concert benefiting BMC Music School scholarships. Admission is by donation. The program will include Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen Op.15, Kreisleriana Op.16, and Fantasie Op.17.

Praised by the Vancouver Sun as a “musician’s musician,” the Macau-born pianist’s dedication, intelligence and artistic accomplishments have already earned him a splendid reputation in the classical music field.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman, pianist Lio Kuok-Wai is a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant administered by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Career Advancement Award given by the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, Scholarship Awards by the Macau Cultural Affairs Bureau and the Feltsman Piano Foundation.

Since his concerto debut at the age of ten with the Macau Orchestra at the opening ceremony of the Macau Arts Festival in 2000, Kuok-Wai has performed with orchestras that include the China Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Camerata Salzburg, Kansas City Symphony Orchestra, Hangzhou Philharmonic Orchestra, Houston Symphony Orchestra and conductors Li Xin-Cao, Edo de Waart, Francois Xavier-Roth, and Michael Stern.
