Please join us at National City Christian Church this Friday, March 10, at 12:15 p.m., for our free weekly Music at Midday. This week we are delighted to be welcoming Muen Vanessa Wei to perform a program of music for piano by two great composers:
- 32 Variations in C minor, WoO 80 – Ludwig van Beethoven
- Etudes, Op. 25, Nos. 7-12 – Frédéric Chopin
Muen Vanessa Wei has been applauded by critics for her “delicate playing” and “admirable virtuosic skills” (The News-Gazette). She has collaborated with great musicians, such as Lynn Harrell, Henry Gronnior, Ian Hobson, Henry Hutchinson, Peter Lloyd, Ko Iwasaki and Joel Smirnoff, among others. Her debut Album “Im 3/4 Takt,” was considered “one of Centaur’s finest releases to date” (Fanfare). Prior to joining Lee University as Assistant Professor of Piano in 2021, Wei has taught at China West Normal University and New Tampa Piano and Pedagogy Academy.
For those who are not able to join us in person, we will be recording the concert and will post it on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
