He has also presented highly acclaimed solo performances worldwide, from Carnegie Hall to China’s Beijing Concert Hall. Pan has been a faculty member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Music since 1994, and was a visiting professor at the China Conservatory of Music in Beijing.

Tickets are $1 for students, $5 for F&M faculty and staff and $10 for off-campus patrons. The box office in the lobby of the Barshinger Center of Musical Arts is open one hour before each performance.
