[CANCELLED] Poet of the Piano: Andrea Lam plays Chopin - Newcastle Music Festival

Provided by:

Event runs from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM


The Festival regretfully announces that, due to indisposition, Maria Raspopova is unable to perform in the advertised concert of Chopin. It is is with great pleasure, however, that we announce that Andrea Lam, the Australian pianist now based in New York, has kindly agreed to perform the same program. The concert will now be named: The Poet of the Piano - Andrea Lam plays Chopin. Andrea Lam made her orchestral debut at age 13 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Since then Andrea has given over seventy performances with orchestras in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, and Hong Kong. Performing with many of the world's leading conductors, including Alan Gilbert, Edo de Waart, Michael Christie, and Wing-sie Yip, orchestras include the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, all the major Australian symphony orchestras (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Queensland, West Australian, Tasmanian), Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and the Auckland Philharmonia and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras (NZ). ABC Classics recently released her soloist recordings of two Mozart concertos with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Nicholas Milton.
