The Donna Fishwick Piano Ensemble has announced a concert on Saturday, March 3 at Gateway Theatre.

Selections for the concert include works by Chopin, Xian (Yellow River Concerto), Schubert, Dvorak, Sousa, Ravel and Liszt.

The Donna Fishwick Piano Ensemble is an award-winning group of young performers whose repertoire includes transcriptions and original compositions for two, four, six, and eight hands for one or two pianos—making the group a unique spectacle of classical music.

Carol Zhang, 16, will be among the featured young pianists. Born in China and now a Richmond resident, Zhang began studying piano at age four and has been practising under Fishwick as a member of the ensemble for the past five years.

Zhang has garnered local, regional and national accolades for her performances and musicianship. Last year she travelled to Italy to participate in the Music Festival Perugia, where she performed in the famous Castiglione Del Lago and the Sala Dei Otari.

The concert is presented by the Pacific Piano Competition Society.

Tickets are $15 for seniors and students, $20 for adults. Tickets available at gatewaytheatre.com or 604-270-1812.
