TAIPEI--Taiwanese-Austrian pianist Rueibin Chen will perform with three young disabled musicians at two concerts later this week in Taiwan, event organizers announced.
The unique events mark the first time that Chen, who has won many international awards, will do so with mentally or physically challenged people, they said at a news conference.
With exceptional musical skills, the three high school students were selected from dozens of teenage applicants around Taiwan, they added.
Describing how tough it was to choose three from many talented applicants, Chen said it was really touching to listen to the recordings of their performances with his eyes closed.
"I hope the events will help the public to experience the special talent of disabled musicians,"
