Music arranged for piano solo from French Impressionism and 19th century German classic songs based on two sets of poems, and Argentinian Tango by a New Yorker and Ragtime by a black female composer from 20th century will be performed. Mindful listening, appreciation, and connection with poetry, racial/gender issues as well as compassion will be shared.

Featuring Dr. Joanne Chang, the New York-based classical pianist, has performed extensively worldwide on five continents as a recitalist, soloist with orchestras, and in various chamber music ensembles. In 1995, she gave her recital debut in Australia, and subsequently performed at Die Stiftung Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Germany, as well as at major concert halls in the United Kingdom, Taiwan, China, Switzerland, South Africa, US, and at the prestigious Carnegie Zankel & Weill Halls in New York City.

Dr. Chang has also established herself as an interdisciplinary researcher (music and psychology). She has a few publications in scientific peer-reviewed journals such as Psychology of Music, Medical Problems for Performing Artists, and Journal of Performance and Mindfulness.

Currently, Joanne Chang is a Professor at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York.
