Lang Lang

Lang Lang

After his wildly successful debut at the Inaugural Opening of Weill Hall, Chinese superstar pianist Lang Lang returns to Sonoma County in a performance guaranteed to thrill audiences with his commanding technique and stellar musicianship.

Time Magazine named Lang Lang in the “Time 100,” citing him as a symbol of the youth of China and its future. Lang Lang is cultural ambassador for Shenzhen and Shenyang. And if the Chinese passion for piano isn’t solely due to him, he has played no small part as a role model – a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as “the Lang Lang effect.” Steinway Pianos for the first time named a model after a single artist when they introduced the “Lang Lang Piano” to China, specially designed for education.
