Famed Pianist Lang Lang To Be Honored Here
International piano virtuoso Lang Lang will be honored at the annual gala of the Music Institute of Chicago May 13. Currently celebrating it’s 83rd year, the group will present Lang with its Dushkin Award at the Four Seasons Hotel event, chaired by Susan B. Noyes and Catherine A. Daniels.
The award was established 27 years ago and named for the Music Institute’s founders, Dorothy and David Dushkin — to recognize international luminaries in the world of music for their contributions to the art form, as well as the education of youth.
The Music Institute of Chicago is the oldest community music school in Illinois and one of the three largest community music schools in the nation.
Previous recipients of the Dushkin Award have included Stephen Sondheim, Riccardo Muti, Yo-Yo Ma, Renee Fleming, Placido Domingo, Isaac Stern, Sir Georg Solti and Pierre Boulez.
