Described by The New York Times as playing with “steely power and incisive rhythm,” pianist Larry Weng is a laureate of numerous competitions, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Concerto Competition and the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition for Young Musicians. He has performed in many renowned concert halls, such as Symphony Hall, New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, Weill Recital Hall, and the Kaufman Center. He has also worked with numerous orchestras, including the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In 2009, he graduated from the highly selective joint degree program between Columbia University and The Juilliard School.
