Christian Louboutin & Yuja Wang, Pianist

pc: Ravinia

We attended Pianist Yuja Wang's  concert at Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois.  She performed Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1 on a Steinway Grand Piano, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra accompanied her.  Well done!

Ms Wang struck me as looking older than her 30 years. Her hair was well-suited for Summer performances as it was cut in an inverted wedge style. She wore an outfit which showed a lot of leg  & arm, yet she was sweating a lot when her Piano performance was over -- possibly because the 3-part Piano Concerto lasted almost an hour.  She also performed two, cute encores;  the last one was a special rendition of "Turkish March" by Mozart.  Loved it!

Even with me on my folding chair on the lawn -- away from the main pavillion --  her high-heeled (stiletto) shoes caught my attention. They were gorgeous Christin Louboutin  shoes similar to the pics below in height. Yet, she managed to play well; and walked on and off the stage just fine.



Ms Wang will wear a long skirt only when she is 40 y.o.
