Lang Lang Performs Chopin In O.C.

Under the direction of its new artistic director, John Magnum, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County has announced its concert programs for the 2015-16 season. Featured are performances by pianists Lang Lang and Yuja Wang – both known for virtuosity spiked with showmanship. Almost every year since 2008 either Lang or Wang has starred in performances at the Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa. This year, Lang will open the season with a recital of Bach’s Italian Concerto, Tchaikovsky’s “The Seasons” and Chopin’s scherzos (Oct. 17).
