Chen, 18, who was the winner of the Chopin Prize from the Music Teachers National Association’s Piano Competition in 2012, will give a solo recital at both venues. There will be a selection of Beethoven, Brahms and of course, Chopin. No tickets are required for the concert, which is free to the public.
