CAPTIVATING BEAUTY. ASTOUNDING TECHNIQUE.

Kirill Karabits, conductor and George Li, piano

RNO appears throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. It is a frequent visitor to major festivals such as Edinburgh, Shanghai, and the BBC Proms. With UF Performing Arts’ favorite conductor, Kirill Karabits, at the helm, RNO will be joined by brilliant piano virtuoso George Li.

Li gave his first public performance at the age of ten and, in 2011, performed for President Obama at the White House. He is also the winner of the 2010 Young Concert Artists International Auditions First Prize, a Silver Medal at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, and a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant. This mix of veteran players and Li’s youthful exuberance will make for a performance we’ll remember for quite some time.
