A master recitalist meets the overwhelming audience favorite composer of the piano for an unforgettable Opening Night celebrating DACAMERA’s return to the concert hall!

Chopin is the irresistible poet of the piano, a profound innovator who transformed solo piano music. Bringing together great sensitivity and commanding virtuosity, Grammy Award-winning pianist Garrick Ohlsson remains the only American to have won the prestigious Chopin Competition. Ohlsson is a master of the intimate art of the solo recital. He has a powerful presence – very tall, and with one of the largest hand spans of any pianist – and a delicacy and finesse for which he’s famous.

“Ohlsson is one of the great American pianists.” – The Washington Post
