Our October 22, 2020 virtual roundtable with 5 Storrs Scholarship recipients from 2019 was a big hit. On this program, we met six of the 2020 Storrs Scholarship recipients, all of whom were enrolled in Connecticut university programs at the time they applied. In normal times, we would have heard some of these pianists in a live recital this month. Instead, we at least got to chat with them, find out more about their current situation and career plans, and hear samples of their pianism.

The scholars joined us from their homes around the US, where they are living and working during the pandemic.

Scholarship recipients who participated in today's roundtable include: Guangfu He, Ina Jun, Ho Man Cheung, Yuanyuan Liu, Chenyu Wang, and Yoshino Toi. Another group of pianists appeared on April 22.
