Continuing their tradition of showcasing the stars of tomorrow here today, the Pasadena Symphony welcomes BBC New Generation Artist Zhang Zuo (“Zee Zee”) to the stage to perform Saint Saens’ Piano Concerto No. 2. First prize winner at China’s 1st International Piano Concerto Competition, the young Zee Zee has already toured the globe in performances with the BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, among others. Her brilliant technical virtuosity will shine through on this showy piece full of bravura – a performance you truly won’t want to miss.
The Pasadena Symphony provides a socially vibrant experience specially designed for the music lover, the social butterfly or a date night out, and the inner epicurean in us all.
