Praised for his “powerful technique and voluptuous tone” (The Washington Post) and playing that is “at once sensitive and technically dazzling” (Daily Camera), Orion Weiss is one of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of young American musicians. Weiss has already performed with the top American Orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and New York Philharmonic. Weiss will perform the third concert in the International Piano Series 29th season at the College of Charleston School of the Arts, with a dynamic program of works by Maurice Ravel, Dmitri Shostakovich and Johannes Brahms.
