Now 21, the pianist has been called “the most exciting prodigy to ever come my way” by a music critic at Musical America, while The New York Times says he plays with “fiery panache” and New York Magazine notes Tao's “aggressive charm and flashes of genuine wisdom.”  (more...)

These are some of the important questions that music raises, and each year, Pacific Symphony, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, attempts to shed light on the answers by exploring a different facet of American music through the American Composers Festival (ACF).
