Two Piano Journey is a benefit recital for Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC), the largest social service provider for Asian families in the greater Boston area.

The recital features Michelle Chen Kuo and Christopher Kuo, a mother-and-son piano duo on a mission to make the world a better place. The artists will traverse the complete two-piano collection of Sergei Rachmaninoff. The first half will juxtapose Russian Rhapsody, Rachmaninoff's cheeky variation on a Russian theme written when he was a conservatory student, against his final work, Symphonic Dances, a wickedly challenging study of orchestral texture and conservative style. The second half features the descriptive and lyrical Fantaisie-Tableaux suite and the intensely passionate Duo Suite No. 2.

Michelle (陳秋霞) is an award-winning pianist and graduate of the Juilliard School; Christopher works as a banker by day and pianist by night.

All proceeds support BCNC’s programs for children, youth, and families.

Admission: 
$50

Mike Mains is a Detroit-based musician who loves rock and roll. Performing more than 300 shows in the last three years, Mains has built a committed fanbase. His shows are high-energy, interactive, and exciting. Last year, wanting to spice things up a little, he played his first “Living Room Tour.” This 35-date North American tour brought him into the homes and backyards of fans to perform his music in a new context, offering a unique, intimate view into his songs. Mains is currently working on his third full-length LP.

Brett Newski has lived all over the world, writing many songs along the way. Newski’s sophomore LP Land Air Sea Garage was recorded partly at a surf camp in the Sri Lankan jungle and partly at home in Wisconsin. The album is about diving into the world with no safety net and landing on your feet. The album is influenced by artists such as Violent Femmes, Jonathan Richman, The Mountain Goats, early Weezer, Frank Turner, and Elliott Smith.

The Racer is an indie band from Monroe, New York. The Racer eschews labels and can hardly be categorized by one genre. The sound is influenced by artists such as Kings of Leon, Radiohead, The National, and Death Cab For Cutie.

Admission: 
$10 in advance / $12 general admission (standing room only)
