Jiayan Sun playing the piano

Friday, September 14, 2018, 5-6 p.m.

Pianist Jiayan Sun opens the JostenLive! season with a talk about and performance of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.  This year, Sun will perform all 32 Beethoven sonatas in chronological order, once a month, on Thursday evenings in Sweeney Concert Hall. Get to know the artist and begin this musical journey with him in an informal setting.

JostenLive! is a patron-driven performance series celebrating the creative lives of its users and the acoustic brilliance of its Mezzanine.  Brief, free of charge, and open to all.
