DETROIT (AP) — Superstar pianist Lang Lang will join the Detroit Symphony Orchestra on its home stage and has agreed to share the collaboration live with the world.
The orchestra plans to announce Friday that the Sept. 28 Orchestra Hall concert marks Lang's first live webcast with a U.S. orchestra. The one-night performance featuring Sergei Prokofiev's (Pro-KOH-Fee-ev) "Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Major" can be viewed on the orchestra's website and a free mobile app.
Earlier that week, the ensemble will perform a program at New York's Lincoln Center. Orchestra officials say that marks another milestone. It will be the first time a major U.S. orchestra has played a full stateside concert of music by a single composer of Chinese descent.
The performances are part of a three-week series of Chinese-related programming.
