Piano Gold Metalist Visits Phillips Center

Add some zest to your musical repertoire; 19-year-old pianist Haochen Zhang, the gold medalist of the 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition (and the youngest participant in the 2009 competition), visits the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts this weekend. “It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see someone of this caliber perform,” says Amy Douglas, director of marketing at the Phillips Center. “It’s an incredibly prestigious event.”

Haochen debuted his musical abilities at the age of five at Shanghai Music Hall and has continued to astound audiences. The Van Cliburn competition, held once every four years, has become known for discovering the world’s finest young pianists. “We originally had one event scheduled, but because of the demand we’ve added a second performance,” Amy says. Haochen’s performances will be Jan. 28 and 29 at 7:30pm at the Squitieri Studio, 315 Hull Road. Tickets are $34 and can be purchased online.
