Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide as a pianist and composer, and has been dubbed a musician of "probing intellect and open-hearted vision" by The New York Times, who also cited him "one of five classical music faces to watch" in the 2018-19 season. Tao is both a recipient of a prestigious Avery Fischer Career Grant, and was named a Gilmore Young Artist-an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation.

In 2018-19, Tao makes his performance debuts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the Cleveland Orchestra. His season opens with the World Premiere of his composition, Everything Must Go, commissioned and performed by the New York Philharmonic.
