Music professor Henry Wong Doe will give a solo piano recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City on March 26.
The concert will take place at 8 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall.
Wong Doe will perform selections from his recent recording of the complete works of internationally renowned New Zealand composer Gareth Farr, including “The Horizon from Owhiro Bay," “Tentang Cara Gamelan,” and other pieces. The album will be released this spring on New Zealand label HRL Morrison Trust Records.
Wong Doe performed the program in January at a recital in his hometown of Auckland, New Zealand.
This will be Wong Doe’s second appearance at Carnegie Hall. He has performed in many other major venues, including Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv, Israel. He has performed twice at the Busoni International Piano Festival in Italy, where he won "audience favorite" awards, and was invited to tour Israel with the Israel Camerata Orchestra.
Wong Doe has taught piano and introductory music courses at IUP for three years. He earned his doctor of musical arts degree in piano from The Julliard School in New York City, a master’s degree from Indiana University Bloomington, and an undergraduate degree from the University of Auckland.
Tickets for the performance are available by calling CarnegieCharge at (212) 247-7800 or at the Carnegie Hall website. Discounts for students and senior citizens are available.
