"The kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music."

Conrad Tao has, “the chops to play anything and the ideas to make it compelling,” says New York Classical Review. Dubbed an artist of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times, pianist and composer Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide in riveting recitals and as a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Boston Symphony. He is the recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and was named a Gilmore Young Artist—an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation. Tao first appeared with Ovations as part of the exciting JCT Trio in the 2016-17 season.
