I hope this finds all of you and your families well and healthy.
I would like to announce the final concert of Glissando’s 2019–20 season, which, at the same time, will be the first concert of Glissando’s new incarnation as a series of live-streamed solo events. The young piano virtuoso Taylor Wang, who has just graduated from the Walnut Hill School for the Arts, where she studied with me for the past three years, will be performing for us on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/GLISSANDOBOSTON/posts/917181252131841 on Sunday, June 7, at 4pm. She will play works by Beethoven (Sonata No. 30 in E, Op. 109); Schumann (Papillons, Op. 2); and Ravel (Gaspard de la nuit). She was supposed to play the Ravel in our fifth concert on March 29 that had to be postponed because of the pandemic. Fortunately, we have the streaming technology. I am really grateful to Taylor for agreeing to perform for us, and I very much look forward to hearing her play!
To non-Facebook users on the East Coast: Facebook’s default time is Pacific Time, so please do not get confused if you click on the link above and see that the concert starts being streamed at 1pm. It is at 1pm Pacific Time and 4pm Eastern Time (also, 9pm Greenwich Time, 10pm Continental European Time, etc.).

Thank you for reading this and for your support! This concert will be a great closing of this season and an auspicious opening of the next. Looking forward to seeing all of you on June 7, virtually speaking.
Stay safe and well!
Founder and Artistic Director, Glissando
