The Museum was pleased to welcome back American classical pianist Claire Huangci, an internationally-renowned prodigy from an early age, as its second performer in the Wurlitzer Concert Series on Saturday, January 9th, 2016. Claire performed the J.S. Bach Goldberg Variations as well as selections from Franz Schubert and Frédéric Chopin. Dozens of Foundation members and friends were dazzled by Claire’s technical proficiency and intense expressionism.
A native of New York, Claire Huangci began to display exceptional musical ability from an early age. She received a gold medal at the World Piano Competition in Cincinatti at the age of 8 and was featured as a child prodigy on FOX News before the age of 11. At age 10, Claire was invited to play for Bill and Hilary Clinton in the White House. After completing her higher education in both the United States and Germany, Claire continued to pursue music and refine her skills into those of a world-class, internationally-acclaimed concert pianist. She currently resides in Hannover and performs extensively in Germany.
