Lang Lang’s search for young pianists

Calling all youthful ivory ticklers! Lang Lang wants you to join him on stage...

Lang Lang has embarked on a quest to find young pianists to join him on the Royal Festival Hall stage for a special performance. The Chinese maestro is looking for musicians aged between 5 and 24 to take part in a massed piano event at the London venue on Sunday, May 22.

The pianist is asking aspiring performers to send in videos of themselves at the piano. The deadline for entries is midnight on February 28, with successful applicants being notified on 15 March. Lang Lang will then let everyone know which pieces to learn!

For more information, as well as the address to send videos, head to the Southbank Centre website.
