The Greater Miami Youth Symphony, conducted by Huifang Chen, brings renowned pianist Meng-Chieh Liu to Miami for an all-Tchaikovsky program at the University of Miami’s Gusman Concert Hall on December 14th. A recipient of the 2002 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Mr. Liu first made headlines as a 21-year-old student, when he substituted for André Watts at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia with three hours’ notice. His acclaimed performance was quickly followed by a recital at the Kennedy Center, among other highly praised appearances. Known as an electrifying performer, Meng-Chieh Liu has appeared with orchestras under conductors Christoph Eschenbach, Gustavo Dudamel, and Alan Gilbert, among others. His concerts have been broadcast around the world. Mr. Liu will perform Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 with the GMYS Symphony Orchestra. The beloved Nutcracker Suite and the 1812 Overture complete the program. Enjoy the top orchestra from Miami’s oldest and most comprehensive youth music program, performing symphonic treasures together with a dynamic pianist.

The seven other GMYS ensembles will perform at 1 pm and 3 pm—tickets available at same link. Indicate 7 pm only, or enjoy all performances for only $5 extra.
