Performance Iowa November 18, 2012
Iowa Public Radio’s Performance Iowa presents a live broadcast of eighteen year old piano phenomenon, Conrad Tao’s performance at the Gallagher–Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. As a Chinese-American born in Urbana, Illinois, he was found playing children’s songs on the piano when he was only eighteen months old, and gave his first recital not long after at the age of four. Tao received a 2012 Avery Fisher Career Grant and has also received praise from around the world after performing across the globe. He has privileged audiences in his solo soloed with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, San Francisco Orchestra and many more.
