In Studio A with Pianists Richard Gao and Wenbo Xing

Interlochen piano students Richard Gao (left) and Wenbo Xing (right) will perform works of Chopin and Liszt in "Collage."

Pianists Richard Gao and Wenbo Xing will perform tonight and tomorrow night as part of Interlochen Arts Academy’s interdisciplinary evening, Collage.

The two pianists visited Studio A to perform works of Chopin ("Etude in A minor Opus 25 No. 11") and Liszt ("Sounds in the Forest").

They told us a little bit about their interests outside the piano. They are both students of Michael Coonrod.
