IUP piano faculty member Henry Wong Doe performed as guest soloist with the Auckland Chamber Orchestra on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at the Raye Freedman Arts Center in Auckland, New Zealand.

Wong Doe performed Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466 with Peter Scholes as conductor of the ACO.

The performance was his third invitation as guest soloist, and the program included other works by Leonie Holmes and Witold Lutoslawski. William Dart, music critic of the New Zealand Herald, wrote in review: "Pianist Henry Wong Doe has played brilliant Stravinsky and Hindemith with the ACO; tonight he transferred the same verve and vigour to Mozart..while he understood the swoon of Mozartian sighs, he clearly relished unleashing his full fury on two eccentric and wild Beethoven cadenzas."

The concert was recorded on Concert FM, Radio New Zealand's classical music channel.
