On February 19th, Joshua had the chance to attend a concert at Artis-Naples featuring concert pianist Lang Lang. The program also featured rising conductor Yu Lu who also gave an outstanding performance with the Naples Philharmonic. The concert featured the very rarely performed Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 1.
After the concert Joshua and his mother made new friends; the former Ambassador to China and his wife and also had a chance to catch up with Lang Lang after the performance. During their discussion, Joshua and Lang Lang talked piano and Joshua’s upcoming Grieg Concerto performance with the Naples Concert Band. Joshua asked for his advice and also spoke with him about ways to get involved with his foundation. It was a great night catching up and Joshua looks forward to working with him more in the future through his foundation and through healthy musical discussions.
