Those who witnessed the astonishing Vancouver debut of (then) 16-year-old pianist George Li in 2011 will know what to expect. This extraordinary young musician has since gone on to win the Silver Medal at the XV International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition and a coveted Avery Fisher Career Development Grant. George possesses brilliant virtuosity and effortless grace far beyond his years. In addition to a busy concert career he is also a student at Harvard University.
