Alpin Hong is our birthday present to ourselves! FCA started exploring classical music 75 years ago, and pianist Alpin Hong is the perfect person to help us honor our past while exuberantly launching us into the future.
Whirlwind American tours and performances across the globe have earned Alpin Hong the reputation as a modern day Pied Piper. From Walt Disney Hall to the White House, his combination of stunning technique, emotional range, and rare humor continues to bring audiences young and old to their feet.
Recent performance highlights included his triumphant return to the Gilmore Piano Festival, featuring his all-new program “Alpin Hong and the Multiverse of Music.” This extraordinary concert celebrated every corner of the musical universe, from classical to video games, culminating in a mind-bending performance featuring Alpin and two other versions of himself.
If you love classical, this is for you. If you love video game and movie soundtracks, this is for you. If you love to laugh and want your intellect tickled as much as your funny bone, this is for you. Most of all, if you want to celebrate 75 years with us, then join us!
