TEDxFultonStreet: Kimball Gallagher


Classical Pianist Kimball Gallagher broke out of the "concert hall" format and booked himself hundreds of performances by bringing back the intimate "salons" for which much of classical music was originally written. He has traveled the world, one private setting to the next — and by interacting with each and every audience member, he gives new meaning to the music.

Through his 88 Concert Tour, which began after his Carnegie Hall Debut in 2008, and taking him through every continent on the planet, classical pianist Kimball Gallagher has touched the hearts of thousands of people with his extraordinary vision, music and playing. Coming full circle, the tour concluded this year at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, after over 300 concerts.
