This special Showcase Concert, the first in the Morrison Artists Series to present exceptional young talent from the Bay Area region, features San Francisco’s own ZOFO. This GRAMMY-nominated, prize-winning Steinway Artist Ensemble, one of only a handful of duos world-wide devoted exclusively to piano duets, has electrified audiences from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo, Japan with their dazzling artistry in programs blending traditional repertoire with new works commissioned from the pens of prominent composers.
