Emanuel Ax

The Wake Forest University Secrest Artists Series will present world-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Wait Chapel. Ax will perform a solo recital of works by Schubert and Liszt.

At 6:40 p.m. music professor Larry Weng will lead a pre-concert discussion of the music. The talk will take place in the Wait Chapel balcony room and seating is limited.

Ax has recorded more than 20 discs for RCA records and has been an exclusive Sony Classical recording artist since 1987. His numerous solo albums and collaborations, with the likes of violinists Itzhak Perlman, Jaime Laredo, Isaac Stern and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, have garnered him multiple GRAMMY® awards. He was the winner of the first Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in 1974, the Michaels Award of Young Concert Artists in 1975, and the Avery Fisher Prize in 1979.

Tickets for the community are $5-$24. Seating is unassigned. More information can be found at or by calling the Secrest Artists Series box office at (336) 758-5757.
