Woodmere Art Museum

World-renowned pianist and improv phenom Hugh Sung launches the Amped Classical innovation series featuring local artists expanding the boundaries of classical music with modern audio production, genre-bending fusions, and visual orchestration.

Pianist Hugh Sung (dubbed “a genius” by YoYo Ma!) made his Philadelphia Orchestra debut at age 11.  Not since the Baroque era has a player been so flexible, improvising and orchestrating on the fly with ease.  Beyond traditional canon, he has also collaborated on hip hop fusion and even launched his own Visual Recital format with live-rendered animation.  A champion of new music, Hugh has premiered countless works with sensitive readings that capture their essence while moving the soul.
