UpStage is thrilled to present pianist, Ji Yong on Wednesday, May 22nd (7:30 p,m,) at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. The musician came to international attention before a televised audience of millions in the highly unconventional Android® commercial that premiered during the 2016 Grammy® Awards. His ‘monotune’ performance of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata on dual pianos was so compelling that People Magazine declared Ji Yong “the real star of the Grammys.” Ji Yong was also the youngest musician ever to win the New York Philharmonic Young Artists Competition at just 10 years of age. Since then, he has been giving recitals and appeared with orchestras worldwide.

Some of the pieces he will perform include Bach’s Prelude and Fugue from Well- Tempered Clavier Book 2 No 15 in G major BWV 884 and Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No 21 Op 53 "Waldstein."

Tickets for the concert can be purchased on the ACA website: http://acadianacenterforthearts.org/events/ or in person at the box office.
