Due to illness, pianist Jon Kimura Parker cancelled his appearance at a recital scheduled for Tuesday, part of the College of Charleston's International Piano Series.
Organizers quickly found a capable substitute: Di Wu.
Di Wu will play a program featuring Debussy's Preludes Book II and Rachmaninoff's piano-intensive cello sonata in G minor, op. 19, which she will perform with cellist-boyfriend Adrian Daurov.
The substitution was made late Monday. It's the second time in two months that the New York-based pianist has filled in for ailing soloists in Charleston. She played Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, filling in for Andrew Armstrong, at a Charleston Symphony Orchestra concert in mid-January, thrilling an appreciative audience.
The piano recital is scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Sottile Theatre, 44 George St. Tickets are $20 and available at the box office or online at go.cofc.edu/ips.
