1/13/2015

 

 

Cumberland University’s School of Humanities, Education and the Arts is pleased to announce that internationally acclaimed and award winning pianist Agnes Wan will be performing at the Heydel Fine Arts Center at 7 pm on January 20, 2015.

 

Agnes Wan has been praised as a pianist with “compelling artistry that draws the listeners in and envelops them with musical joy.” A Hong Kong native, Agnes Wan was named a finalist (the only solo pianist among the finalist) at the 2012 International Web Concert Hall Competition. She has also received awards at the Los Angeles Liszt International Piano Competition, the Hong Kong Open Piano Competition and many other competitions.

 

Agnes Wan currently serves as an Assistant Professor of Music at Chowan University in North Carolina. She is a Steinway Artist, a designation that she has officially held since September 2013.

 

Ms. Wan’s exceptional musical performance will serve as the dedication concert for Cumberland’s new Kawai Grand Piano. The new grand piano purchase was made possible through the generous contributions of donors to this project.

 

This free concert is open to the public.
