Pianist and composer Chad Lawson joins with acclaimed violinist Judy Kang and cellist Seth Parker Woods for a performance that invites traditional and non-traditional audiences alike. 

Lawson is a modern-day master of reinvention—his bold interpretations of the classics, electronic loops and atmospherics resonate with both EDM fans and neo-classical traditionalists. A streaming star with tens of millions of followers, Lawson has become known as the artist creating “classical music for the Spotify generation.” 

Kang is distinguished for her individuality and unique career as a violinist and chamber musician. She is a member of the acoustic trio of Ryuichi Sakamoto, has collaborated with Lenny Kravitz and toured with Lady Gaga as her solo violinist. 

Woods, hailed by The Guardian as a “cellist of power and grace,” has collaborated with a wide range of artists from the Ictus Ensemble to Peter Gabriel and has established himself as a versatile musician straddling several genres. 

“The music I make is meant to create calm. And now, more than ever, that’s what the world needs to hear.”
