Del Mar College Cultural Programs presents a solo recital by pianist Sean Chen. Winner of the 2013 American Pianists Awards and the third-prize winner at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Competition, Chen was also named a 2015 fellow by the prestigious Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund for the Performing Arts. He has performed with many prominent orchestras, collaborated with esteemed conductors, performed solo recitals internationally, served on the juries of notable piano competitions and has been featured in both live and recorded performances. A multifaceted musician, Chen also transcribes, composes and improvises. His transcription of Ravel’s La Valse has been received with glowing acclaim, and his encore improvisations are lauded as “genuinely brilliant” by the Dallas Morning News. His Prelude in F# was commissioned by fellow pianist Eric Zuber and subsequently performed in New York.
Currently, Chen lives in Kansas City, where he is the artist-in-residence at the University of Missouri.
