About The Lang Lang Foundation
Lang Lang foundation aims for every child to have access to music experiences that ignite something wonderful inside of them, just as music delivered something incredible for its founder Mr. Lang Lang.
On His Own Words:
“My hope with the Foundation is to find a way to capture the potential that I see music has. Music can positively transform lives and provide inspiration to kids around the world in a meaningful and sustainable way. I hope that my Foundation can help to carry on my passion for music and encourage kids to engage, with any genre of music am passionate about music, and I have dedicated my life to it. I would love to inspire the next generation of classical music lovers and performers – to study piano and those who experience live performances for the first time to get motivated to follow performing arts as careers. Giving is much more gratifying than receiving and is the feeling I get during every interaction I have with kids. Seeing smiles on young people faces motivates me to spend more time and energy creating unique experiences for them”
