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.
