Chelsea Chen is a highly accomplished organist and composer; her work, albeit classical, is expanded upon with inflections of her own compositions, based on Asian folksongs. Chen’s Overture Hall debut features her original Taiwanese Suite, plus works by Grieg, Holst’s The Planets, and more. Experience the nuances of her lively and personalized style brought to life on the Mighty Klais organ.
