Lang Lang will be performing in two concerts this week, one in Orange County and one at the Mouse House. The first concert takes place Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:30 PM in the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Lang Lang brings a few of his friends along for this concert. Guest performers include a 10 year old pianist, and the program is supposed to highlight up and coming Chinese musicians including cellist Hai-Ye Ni, tenor GeQun Wang, violinist Zhu Dan, and erhu ("chinese violin") player Guo Gan. For those that are looking for something more traditional and/or closer to home, Lang Lang will be performing works of Beethoven and Prokofiev. This concert is this Sunday at 7:30 PM, and you can get tickets here.
