Pianist Ohuchi has been hailed as a pianist performing “brilliantly with clarity, nuance and natural musicality.” She has performed throughout the world, and served a four-year tenure at the Julliard School of Music teaching piano.
The evening will also include the popular art show featuring the works of Burns and Crane high school art students during the reception following the concert.
The young artists have been working on their art in conjunction with Lefohn and Ohuchi in a virtual studio-to-school project. The students will be treated to a personal visit by the music duo Wednesday, April 23.
