Rueibin Chen and His Masterful Performance at Disney Concert Hall

Published 08/24/2011 ⋯⋯ ⋯⋯LOS ANGELES -

Rueibin Chen this past Friday night at Walt Disney Concert Hall performed spectacular renditions of some of the greatest classical songs of all time. The event, sponsored by the Cathay?Bank Foundation headquartered in El Monte, featured the works of Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Bach, Stravinsky (Three Movements from the Ballet Suite) and S. Prokofiev. A highly appreciative audience gave Chen multiple rounds of standing ovations and the reputable pianist treated the crowd to extra songs, despite being visibly fatigued. At one point the musician took a handkerchief from his pocket to wipe away sweat, cough and catch his breath. After the performance Chen graciously signed autographs and took photographs with his fans, who made no qualms about waiting in a long line for the chance to meet the performer.
