    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Impassioned by their love for music and belief in its emotional power, pianists Nick Luby and Susan Zhang converted a 16-foot box truck into a fully functioning mobile concert hall, complete with lights, sound system and piano. Their goal is to engage diverse communities and audiences nationwide with thoughtful, timely programming.

    Since then, The Concert Truck has toured the country, presenting concerts in city streets, music and arts festivals, schools, neighborhoods and parks... anywhere you can park a truck. Nick, Susan and the Truck have been featured by Voice of America – VOA, Minnesota Public Radio, the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, WYPR Maryland and many local TV news stations, online publications and syndicates. 

    In addition to sharing original programming with local communities, The Concert Truck strengthens relationships between arts organizations and the communities they serve. In the Fall 2020 season, The Concert Truck partnered with The Kennedy Center’s Washington National Opera, University of South Carolina, Southeastern Piano Festival and Dallas Symphony Orchestra to deliver great music to their local communities.
