Just off the heels of a sold-out 14-city recital tour of Korea  and Japan, piano sensation Seong-Jin Cho will embark in February on a U.S. recital tour to 9 cities from New York to San Francisco. The tour commences on February 21, 2018 in New Jersey and  heads north to Massachusetts and Ontario, where Cho replaces an indisposed Lang Lang in his debut at Canada's National Arts Centre in Ottawa. From there, Cho moves west  to Arizona and California, where he returns to San Francisco's Herbst Theatre, and he plays the final  date of the tour on March 6, 2018 at Rockellefer University in New York City. 

The February/March 2018 U.S. recital tour will be a rare opportunity for fans and music-lovers to see  Seong-Jin live in recital before his 2019 return to Carnegie Hall. Three of the 10 concerts are already  sold out: February 25th at Rockport Music (Massachusetts), March 3rd at 8pm at Soka Performing  Arts Center (California) and March 6th at Rockefeller University (New York).
