Artist-in-Residence: Conrad Tao
Thursday, March 24, 2016 | 2:00 pm
Conrad Tao will read new works for piano by Duke graduate composers Eren Gümrükçüoglu and Sid Richardson.
Conrad Tao began his musical career as a wunderkind. As a pre-teenager he appeared as both a violin and piano soloist with dozens of top-tier orchestras, and later received eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. Now twenty-one, he has transitioned gracefully into a mature artist with interpretive depth well beyond his years. The Baltimore Sun declares, “Tao possesses startling technical élan and an ability to communicate clearly, no matter how thorny a score may become.
