The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.

Mr. Hong is an amazing performer with humility and talent that makes his show worth the drive. He's really quite a funny fellow as well. Something I never expected from a classical pianist.

Description

Whirlwind American tours and performances across the globe have earned pianist Alpin Hong the reputation as a modern day Pied Piper. His combination of stunning technique, emotional range, and rare humor continues to bring audiences young and old to their feet.

In July 2005, Gramophone magazine declared his first, self-titled CD (works of Scarlatti, Brahms, Debussy and Stravinsky on MSR Classics) “a debut that enhances this young pianist’s reputation,” praising his “strong finger-work and keen ear for voice-leading.” The release of his second album, friendtaskmasterteacher, sold out of its first run within a matter of weeks and garnered critical acclaim.
