About the Guest Performer: Guest Artist, Physician, and pianist Christopher Shih has been hailed by The New York Times as "an intelligent and thoughtful musician," with "effortless performances" and "consummate control." He has performed in major venues in over a dozen countries around the globe, including France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Taiwan, Canada, and many cities in the United States. Festival appearances include the Aspen Music Festival and the Banff Chamber Music Festival. He has soloed with numerous orchestras, including repeated engagements with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington DC. His performance with the National Symphony on the Capitol Lawn for an audience of 50,000 prompted the Washington Post to declare, "If Shih is as gifted in medicine as he is in music, he has some serious career decisions to make. His performance was fluent, gracious, miraculously light, and a joy to the ear."
