Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide as a pianist and composer. Born in Urbana, Illinois, in 1994, he has performed as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Boston Symphony Orchestra, as well as the New York Philharmonic. As a composer, his works have been performed by orchestras throughout the world; his first large scale orchestral work, Everything Must Go, received its World Premiere by the New York Philharmonic, which commissioned the piece, and European premiere with the Antwerp Symphony. He received a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award, for Outstanding Sound Design / Music Composition, for his work on More Forever, a collaboration with dancer and choreographer Caleb Teicher. He is also the recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant and was named a Gilmore Young Artist.

In the 2023–24 season Tao makes subscription debuts with the Chicago Symphony and New York Philharmonic, and is presented in recital by The Cleveland Orchestra and Klavierfestival Ruhr in a program tracing a line from Rachmaninoff to the music of Billy Strayhorn, Harold Arlen, and Stephen Sondheim. Meanwhile, Tao’s summer appearances include performances with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Boston Symphony Orchestra, and he celebrates the 100th anniversary of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, performing it across Europe with Matthias Pintscher and the Kansas City Symphony, including appearances at the Philharmonie in Berlin, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Conrad Tao has also written a new companion piece to the work, co-commissioned by the Santa Rosa Symphony, Aspen Music Festival, and Omaha Symphony.
