Due to a death in her immediate family, Beth Levin has canceled her Nov. 4 performance for the International Piano Series at the College of Charleston School of the Arts.
In her place, CofC Concerts will showcase exciting and accomplished pianist, Ji, on Tuesday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sottile Theatre, 44 George St. He will perform a program of Bach-Busoni, Schubert, Prokofiev and Ravel. Watch a video of Ji.
Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a gifted young pianist who is clearly going places,” Ji has been lauded from a young age for his compelling musical presence and impressive technical command. This 24-year-old Korean star has earned a stellar collection of awards and prizes, including the 2012 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, which led to recital debuts at Merkin Concert Hall and the Kennedy Center on the Young Concert Artists Series, for which he received rave reviews.
Audiences in the Charleston area may appreciate that in 2013 Ji performed a four-hand recital with Lowcountry-favorite Charles Wadsworth in a chamber music program of the “Farewell” Concert of Charles Wadsworth and Friends (Newman, GA). In addition, he has appeared as soloist with numerous orchestras, including the Toronto Symphony and the Nashville Symphony, and he has given recitals at major performance halls and educational institutions.
Through collaborations with pop-stars, ballet dancers and other talented artists, Ji has had a creative vision of making classical music accessible to all people, especially young audiences. In 2010 he worked with renowned Korean pop-artist Tae Jung Kim to design the “Ji-T” piano, bringing classical music to the public on the busy streets of Seoul.
General admission is $20 and free for all students with I.D. Tickets and season subscriptions available online at, at the door, or by calling (843) 953-6575.
