Krannert Center Events: 2022-2023 Season

About This Event

From the age of five, all Chad Lawson wanted to do was play the piano. Forty years of dedication has yielded several #1 releases of both Chad’s original compositions and fresh reinterpretations of the classical repertoire. He has toured worldwide and appeared on CBS Sunday Morning and NPR’s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon . Chad brings his trio featuring violinist Judy Kang (Lady Gaga, Ryuichi Sakamoto) and cellist Seth Parker Woods (Sting, Peter Gabriel) to Krannert Center for this free event, performing a set of meditative pieces described as “Classical music for the Spotify generation.”

Saturday, September 10th at 5:30pm at Stage 6

See the Krannert Center website for more details and to purchase tickets.

Lawson will also be hosting a wellness event at Krannert Center on September 10th at 12:00pm. In this free session, Lawson explores how focused breathing techniques combined with live meditative music can help achieve a more relaxed state of mind.
