We are so happy to finally welcome Chinese Classical Guitarist Tengyue (T.Y.) Zhang to St. Louis for the first concert of our 60th Anniversary season at the 560 Music Center! Past season subscribers may remember he missed his performance at the Ethical Society in 2018, so we welcome Mr. Zhang for his long anticipated St. Louis debut.
The highlight of TY Zhang’s international career was the Grand Prize of the 2017 Guitar Foundation of American International Concert Artist Competition (GFA-ICAC), known as the most prestigious guitar contest in the world. TY become the first Chinese to be honored with this prize. His win was followed by a tour with over 50 concerts in the U.S., including his Carnegie Hall debut. In 2018, TY released his solo album with Naxos company as the Laureate Series · Guitar Recital. It was praised as: “one of the most talented young players… I’m struck by the extraordinary levels of mastery, comfort and relative ease.” —Classical Guitar Magazine.
