TRA NGUYEN, pianist
British-Vietnamese pianist Tra Nguyen’s performances have been praised as “coruscating” (The Independent), “sophisticated” (Rheinpfalz-Zeitung) and possessing "surpassing keyboard artistry and passion" (American Record Guide). Her recent recordings on Sterling Records and Grand Piano Naxos have been chosen as Album of the week by The Independent, in March 2010 and in April 2012.
Tra's imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music. She worked with Sterling Records to produce premiere recordings of music for piano and orchestra by Joachim Raff. The most recent chamber music CD with clarinetist Sabine Grofmeier has been released on ARS Produktion, featuring works of the German romantics and their contemporaries.
The event ticket includes the Art Exhibition and Concert. Wine, Tea, Beer, Water, Soft Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served during the Art Exhibition and Silent Auction, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and during the intermission.

Kids First Enterprise (KFE) is excited to present the ninth annual “Arts For Mobility” art exhibition and concert, featuring pianist Tra Nguyen, one of the most successful in the new generation of Vietnamese pianists, and the Saigon Chamber Music Young Virtuosi. They’ll be performing a musical program that is both virtuosic and emotional, a musical experience you won’t want to miss.
KFE provides a quality evening of art and music entertainment, resulting in giving poor people with disabilities a modern, state of the art wheelchair. The success of the event the past seven years has been outstanding, we thank you for your support and hope we can count on you to make 2016 even better.
Our goal in 2016 is to fund the manufacture and distribution of wheelchairs for the disabled in Vietnam who could not otherwise afford a wheelchair. The wheelchairs will be manufactured at the KFE Mobility Factory, Dong Ha Town, Quang Tri Province, one of the poorest communities in Vietnam. The factory provides jobs in the local community, with a focus on employing people with disabilities.
We can give the “Gift of Mobility” for $120.00 to make it possible for many of the recipients to get a productive job, have valuable community inclusion, self reliance and economic independence.
