It was the chance of a lifetime for 100 students from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra school who got to perform with superstar pianist Lang Lang at the Orpheum Theatre's stage on Tuesday.

The celebrated musician is in Vancouver for a sold-out concert at the Orpheum Theatre tomorrow night. 

All of the high school and elementary school pianists are from the VSO School of Music, and they doubled up to play on 50 pianos on the theatre's stage.

"101 Pianists", which was both a public performance and a class, had Schubert's Marche Militaire and Brahms's Hungarian Dance No. 5. on the repertoire.
