World-renowned pianist Angela Chang will be sharing her extraordinary gift for music on the College Arts Centre mainstage Nov. 4.

The concert, which is a fundraiser for the Alberta Music Education Foundation, begins at 8 p.m.

Cheng will be performing music from the repertoires of Mozart and Chopin.

Cheng has certainly made her mark in the world of first-rate pianist virtuosity. She is continually recognized for her superb musicianship and has performed with nearly every Canadian orchestra, as well as the Birmingham Symphony, the Houston Symphony and the Indianapolis Symphony and the Israel Philharmonic.

Cheng’s debut recording of two Mozart concerti with Mario Bernardi and the CBC Vancouver Orchestra received glowing reviews. Other projects include Clara Schumann’s Concerto in A Minor with JoAnn Falletta and the Women’s Philharmonic, four Spanish concerti with Hans Graf and the Calgary Philharmonic and both Shostakovich concerti with Mario Bernardi and the CBC Radio Orchestra.

In 1986, Cheng was the gold medal winner of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition as well as the first Canadian to win the prestigious Montreal International Piano Competition (1988). For her outstanding interpretations of Mozart, she received the Medal of Excellence at the Mozarteum in Salzburg in 1991.

Opening the concert will be the Rosedale Valley Strings led by Naomi Delafield, virtuoso violinist and concertmaster of the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra.

The Rosedale Valley Strings are an inter-denominational, community-based youth string orchestra which performs for a variety of church, school and community events around the province of Alberta.

They are described as a group that devotes their musical talents to making a difference in their community and their world. Each year the players select an international humanitarian project to support.
