Let's Play Together!
“I started 101 Pianists® to give piano students an opportunity to play together,” says Lang Lang.
“It started about 15 years ago at one of my concerts where I invited students to join me on stage for an encore – and we had a wonderful time. So, I wanted to do more of these events as a workshop and also a performance for the community. It’s now one of the key programs of my foundation.” – Lang Lang
The 101 PIANISTS® performances aim to inspire the next generation of music lovers and performers by engaging 100 young pianists in a unique social musical event with Lang Lang. In 2009, Lang Lang brought 100 pianists together for a unique performance that produced something greater than any single performer could create alone. To date this program has inspired over 100,000 audience members and piano students internationally.
The event is a celebration of the beauty and social nature of the piano, and we recreate this magic in some of the most prestigious international venues in cities like Paris, Berlin, London, Hong Kong, and Rome.
These events have been described by the media and host institutions as “extravaganzas!” This educational workshop and performance provides a unique community centered show for music lovers of all ages.
