Corey Hamm, piano
Nicole Li, erhu
Pianist Corey Hamm and erhu virtuoso Nicole Li created the PEP (Piano Erhu Project) to synthesize the best of Chinese and Western music.
Corey is hailed for brilliant, tour de force performances of music that leaves audiences breathless. Nicole is praised for an expressive versatility that ranges from classical to rock, folk song to new music. Together, they’ve worked with more than 50 composers to develop a cross-cultural repertoire entirely their own.
In this Asian Heritage Month concert, they’ll perform an programme of music written specifically for their particular, unique sound.
