Mexican prodigy Daniela Liebman has already created a legacy for herself. She’s performed with more than 25 orchestras on four continents. At 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Gartner Auditorium, she’ll perform as part of the 2019-2020 Performing Arts Classical Piano Series presented by Cuyahoga Community College.

Seating at the free concert is on a first-come basis the day of the recital.

“Daniela performs with eloquence, poise and nuance that belie her age of 17,” says Emanuela Friscioni, director of Tri-C’s Classical Piano Series, in a press release about the event. “The audience is in for a treat.”

Last year, Liebman released her eponymous debut album, and it includes a recording of Manuel Ponce’s "Balada Mexicana" that's been streamed more than a million times on Spotify.

Forbes Mexico has called her one of the 40 Most Creative Mexicans in the World, and the magazine also named Liebman one of the nation’s 100 Most Creative and Powerful Women.

Liebman’s performance is the first of four Classical Piano Series concerts in the college’s 2019-2020 Performing Arts season. The shows are designed to bring a world-class artistic experience to the Greater Cleveland community. Visit for a full schedule of events.
