Presenters' Testimonials

“Ang Li was a pleasure! She was professional, extremely talented and skillful on every level. Our audience was not only impressed by the quality of her performance, but also with her personality and poise. The multiple standing ovations Ang Li received were the most convincing of testimonies. We look forward to having her return in the future.”
Ken Hardin, Artistic Director & Julie Hardin, Executive Director, InConcert Sierra

“Ang is a very gifted and rapidly evoving artist who’s creativity, mastery of the instrument and professional manner make her a delight to work with. Our audiences love her and are excited to have her returning to this year.”

"I have managed Ang Li's recital in China, which won a great success and get high acclaim both from media and audiences."
David Zeng, Director at Wang Liping Music Studio

“Apart from being such a brilliant young pianist, what is most unique about Ang Li is how she becomes a living conduit for music to touch, inspire and empower not only the adult audience who watched her for the first time in Manila but especially the children and young people for whom she gave a special matinee performance. She made time so that they could interact with her in a post-performance dialogue. The interaction was electric and life-changing especially for the children in the margins. Ang is a great artist who is just as skilled in connecting with audiences young and old.”
Cecilia Garrucho, President at the Philippine Educational Theater Association

“Ang Li performed a captivating program for Green Valley Recreation. Our audience appreciated her passion for the music and had a lovely connection with this exceptionally talented pianist. We were so pleased to have an artist of Ms. Li’s caliber perform for us!”
Julie Vance, Green Valley Recreation

Ken Morden, President at Port Hope Friends of Music

“For master class for young students of varying abilities, Ang Li demonstrated exceptional training, knowledge and pianistic facility . She was patient and supportive yet demanded high level results from each of the participants. As a performer, Ang Li showed a profound understanding of the music, an effortless technique and a seductive legato. The audience responded enthusiastically.”
John Orlando, Director at Distinguished Artists Concert & Lecture Series

“Ang Li has performed at our Salon series of recitals in SoHo. Aside from her stellar performance at the Piano, her connections with the audience are what gets people really involved with classical music.”
Louis K. Meisel

“Ang Li was invited to perform the first concert on our new grand piano at Southampton United Church. Her warm personality drew the audience in as she completely captivated the packed house. Ang Li has extraordinary technical skill and passion at a young age. She showed wonderful control in the rapid runs and great power in the showy Liszt concert. We are excited and honoured welcome her for turn visit this year in October, 2013.”
Marg Funston, Southampton United Church

“Ang Li is a remarkably talented pianist. She wowed the audience and we hope to have her back to perform again in the future.”

“Ang Li is an outstanding, exciting concert pianist!”
Emma Lou Diemer, Prof. Emer., University of California at Santa Barbara

“Ang Li performed my work Es ist genug! at Carnegie Hall in December 2011. The work is based on fragments by J.S. Bach that are to be assembled by the performer in real-time through improvisation. Ang’s realization of my piece was simply brilliant. Her playing was at the same time technically perfect, introspective and unbelievably musical.”
Jérôme Blais, Associate Professor at Dalhousie University

“Ang Li came to Merriam Music and performed a concert and masterclass for some young pianists and their families in October 2011.  Her performance captivated the audience leaving them truly inspired to further pursue their musical goals.  The students who worked with her in the masterclass greatly appreciated her input on their repertoire and were encouraged by her willingness to share some of her practice strategies and performance tips.  Overall, it was a memorable experience for all who attended!"
Mary Ficzere, Enriched Program Manager at Merriam School of Music

“Ang Li’s masterful playing held a group of our Grade 2 school students captive. Imagine 80 children that age sitting quietly through a classical music presentation. She is spellbinding.”
Sylvia Elias, 88 Keys Grand Piano Society, Fernie B.C.

“The City of Edinburgh Music School is an All-Steinway School of Excellence. During the 2011 Edinburgh Festival we were delighted to invite Ang Li into our school. She performed a recital followed by a question and answer session that we all enjoyed immensely. Leading up to this, Ang spent some time in the Music School preparing for her Festival Concerts and quickly developed a wonderful rapport with all our students. We are all hoping she returns before too long.”
Tudor Morris, Director at The City of Edinburgh Music School

"Ms. Ang Li is one of the most talented and artistic pianists I have had the pleasure of listening to, and becoming acquainted with. She originally came to me inquiring about our Steinway grand pianos, and I subsequently invited her to perform at our small venue. The audience was wowed, as was I, and I knew she was someone to keep an eye on. Now that our location has moved to the D.C. area, and we have a much larger recital hall, Ang Li was on the short list of pianists that I wanted to schedule to perform here. She is professional on all levels, and truly a gifted artist."
Anne Warren, Steinway & Sons Institutional and Retail Representative at Denton, Cottier and Daniels

“Ms. Ang Li is patient and detailed in teaching performers during her masterclass at Tom Lee Academy Hall.  Her knowledge in perfecting  performance technique & her understanding of musical style benefits not only the performers but also the audiences who have attended her masterclass.”
Katie Yu, Institution & Artist Liaison Manager at Tom Lee Music Foundation
