September 14, 2017

The 2017-2018 Candler Concert Series kicks off its 15th year in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 8 p.m. with the pairing of pianist Alessio Bax and violinist Chee-Yun in a program that includes Beethoven, Busoni and Brahms. 

Pianist Alessio Bax has been praised for creating a "ravishing listening experience" by Gramophone magazine and a performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was heralded by The New York Times as having “…unfolded with an ease, precision and beauty so seemingly effortless that the music appeared to live and breathe of its own volition.”

Violinist Chee-Yun has enraptured audiences on five continents with her flawless technique and dazzling tone. She performs regularly with the world’s foremost orchestras, and has toured the United States with the San Francisco Symphony and Japan with the NHK Symphony. 

Each year, the Candler Concert Series brings internationally-renowned artists to Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. Candler artists range from large ensembles to solo artists, and come from a wide variety of musical genres. 

Tickets are available online, or by calling or visiting the Arts at Emory Box Office
