The President's Piano Series was founded in 2011 with the mission of providing access to acclaimed pianists for both the Southern California community and the students of Chapman University.
Under the artistic direction of Grace Fong, each year the President's Piano Series presents internationally acclaimed pianists and ensembles from throughout the world that perform both solo and chamber music recitals. Internationally renowned pianists present three concerts on select Thursday evenings during the Spring semester. All concerts take place at 7:30pm in Salmon Recital Hall located on the Chapman University campus.
