Two talented Rocky Point student-musicians – eighth-grader Bryant Liu and ninth-grader Allen Liu – were selected to perform with world-renowned pianist Lang Lang as part of the Lang Lang 101 Pianists Program at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.

The Lang Lang Foundation developed this program as an opportunity for young piano students to learn from and perform with Lang Lang for audiences around the world. After an invitation-only master class given by the keyboard master, 100 young local pianists joined him to perform Schubert’s Marche Militaire No. 1 and Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca.

The Liu brothers were selected for this honor through a rigorous application and audition process and were chosen from more than 200 applicants in New York State. They were recently recognized for this honor at the district’s Oct. 27 Board of Education meeting.
