Piano prodigy coming to opera house

Published: Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

William Yang is a big thing in a small box. He’s 12. He’s cute. He’s brilliant. Virtuosity is an overused word, but his is a performance talent beyond verbal description, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

He’s coming to the Sandwich Opera House stage at 7:30 p.m. March 8.

William, from Eden Prairie, Minn., has been winning piano competitions and performing publicly since the age of 7. His repertoire includes works by Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Godowsky, Prokofiev, Schumann, Grieg, Schubert and Liszt. Some of his past performances can be found on YouTube.

Tickets cost $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 65 and older and $15 for students, and can be purchased at the Opera House box office, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich, from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also can be reserved by phone at 815-786-2555 during those hours.
