Beat Goes Bach is a project by Mei Lin Hii to explore the possibilities of mashing up classical Bach music with drums and percussions. Beat Goes Bach reimagines the possibilities when two accomplished musicians get together to start a ‘band’ – allowing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach to come alive in a different way.
Classical pianist Mei Lin Hii holds a Master of Music Degree and Professional Studies Diploma from the Manhattan School of Music in New York. There she studied with renowned teacher Zenon Fishbein. Prior to that, she was a student of Michael Ruiz at the American Conservatory of Music , Chicago. Mei Lin has performed in piano masterclass with world-renowned pianist-teachers such as Leon Fleisher, Byron Janis, Nina Svetlanova and the late Shura Cherkassky.
As the winner of the 1995 Artists International Competition in New York, Mei Lin made her New York debut recital at Weill Hall in Carnegie Hall to a dazzled audience.
