Her program will include the world premier of Glasovir (2014) by Kendall Kennison, and Meditation by Ingrid Arauco.  Also on the program are Carl Vine’s 1st Piano Sonata, Schönberg's Klavierstücke, Op. 19, and Ravel's La Valse

Hailed for her “expressive and powerful playing”, “formidable technique”, as well as her “keen sense of lyricism and the classical style” (Columbus and Richmond Times Dispatch), pianist Caroline Hong continues to flourish in her career as an internationally active soloist, chamber musician, artist-teacher, guest-lecturer, and adjudicator. Pulitzer Prize and Academy award-winning composer John Corigliano referred to her as “one of the greatest pianists I have ever heard” after a performance of his Etude Fantasy (1976). Critics wrote that it was “breathtaking” and “hard to imagine a better performance.” She has recorded for Mark Records and records for Fleur de Son, and has been favorably reviewed by American Record Guide.
