Alan Alda, the actor, director, writer, and educator, was honored on April 24 at the Stony Brook Foundation’s annual fund-raising event, held at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. The benefit raised more than $4 million, which will help pay for the university’s new Center for Communicating Science.
Amber Liao, a classical pianist, will perform at the Montauk Library on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The concert, which is free, will include masterworks by Mozart, Chopin, Debussy, and Danielpour.
Ms. Liao has given recitals and solo performances throughout the United States and abroad, including recent engagements at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the National Concert Hall in Taiwan. Her recording of works by Schumann, Beethoven, and Granados was recently released on the MSR Classics label.
