Conrad Tao

Friday, March 27, 2015 at 8 p.m.

Hailed by renowned music critic Harris Goldsmith as “the most exciting prodigy to ever come my way” (Musical America).  Conrad has performed several times with Pacific Symphony in recent years.  We are delighted to host his first solo recital in Orange County. 

Conrad Tao has, for nearly a decade, enjoyed a varied career as pianist, composer, violinist, and – most recently – presenter and curator. He was found playing children's songs on the piano at 18 months of age, gave his first piano recital at age 4, and four years later made his concerto debut performing Mozart's Piano Concerto in A Major, K. 414. Conrad was also the only classical musician on Forbes' 2011 “30 Under 30” list of people changing the world.
