Prepare to be mesmerized by the classical music phenomenon Yuze Lee, as the much-talked-about 13-year-old pianist graces the stage of the Walt Disney Concert Hall on July 6 at 8pm. 

Yuze Lee’s musical journey began at a remarkably young age when he displayed an innate ability to replicate melodies he heard from his older brother’s drumming. From that moment, a profound love for music was born, and Yuze’s dedication to the piano has only deepened with time. Drawing inspiration from legendary composers such as Rachmaninoff, Ravel, and Prokofiev, Yuze Lee’s performance promises to take you on a captivating journey through the romantic era of classical music. The evening will feature the award-winning Hollywood Chamber Orchestra performing The Barber of Seville by Rossini, then Yuze will perform  Ravel’s Piano Concert in G Major, and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1.  This concert will be sure to solidify Lee as one of the most important wunderkids in the classical music world today.
