10 – 11 a.m.
The Lang Lang Young Scholars are exceptional young pianists personally selected by virtuoso pianist Lang Lang from around the world to participate in international learning and performance opportunities provided by the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. The Foundation collaborates with Midwest Young Artists Conservatory, the Midwest's most comprehensive youth music school and ensemble program, for its annual Summer Music Summit in Chicago. Every August since 2012, Young Scholars and MYAC students work together in a weeklong celebration of collaborative music. Scholars and students are placed in chamber music ensembles, assigned a piano concerto, and receive daily coaching from MYAC maestro Allan Dennis. Young Scholars stay with MYAC families, building friendships and laying the groundwork for a network of musicians that will last a lifetime. The Young Scholars will perform with the MYAC Symphony Orchestra at Millennium Park’s Jay Pritzker Pavilion on Sunday, August 20.
