Angela Cheng, Professor of Piano at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, will perform a guest recital for Baylor University’s Lyceum Series on Thursday, November 1, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Concert Hall, located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building.
Praised for her brilliant technique, tonal beauty, and superb musicianship, this remarkable Canadian pianist has appeared as a soloist with more than one hundred orchestras, including the Israel Philharmonic, Boston Pops, Buffalo Philharmonic, and the symphonies of Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Saint Louis, Houston, San Diego, Indianapolis, Syracuse, Utah, and Colorado. An avid recitalist, she has performed solo and chamber recitals throughout North America, Asia, and Europe, including New York City (Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and the 92nd Street Y), Wigmore Hall in London, Disney Hall in Los Angeles, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., as well as venues in Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Montreal, Toronto, Taiwan, Italy, and Australia.
In 2009, at the invitation of Pinchas Zukerman, Ms. Cheng toured Europe and China with the Zukerman Chamber Players. Subsequent seasons have seen multiple tours of Europe and South America, including performances in Paris, London, Prague, Moscow, Warsaw, Budapest, São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, at the Musikverein in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and at the Salzburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Verbier, and Ravinia festivals.
