Japanese pianist and composer Nobuyuki Tsujii will perform a program of classical works by DeBussy and Chopin. Blind since birth, 25-year-old Tsujii has had an illustrious career, having won the Gold Metal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition at age 21 and made his debut at Carnegie Hall at age 23. This rising star has garnered extensive international accolades, and his performance this night is sure to be memorable. Van Cliburn himself has famously dubbed him “absolutely miraculous.” There will be a pre-concert lecture 45 minutes before the performance at 8 p.m. Tickets ($20–$34) can be purchased by calling 706-542-4400 or by visiting pac.uga.edu.
