Partially-deaf legendary pianist Fuzjko Hemming will be back in Los Angeles for a special concert in support of The Humane Society of the United States

Despite her severe hearing difficulties and turbulent life story, including a time spent under refugee status, Fuzjko Hemming has beaten the odds to become a highly-acclaimed concert pianist who performs around the world. At the age of 16, this Swedish-Japanese classical icon was struck with deafness and remains partially deaf today.

In 1999, her documentary broadcast in Japan created a huge sensation, which made her a star with the multi-million selling debut album "La Campanella" in her late 60s. She received the Classical Album of the Year Award at Japan's prestigious Gold Disc Awards, not only once but four times-an unusual success that has never been achieved by any other artist.†

Ms. Hemming has performed numerous charity concerts. As an animal lover, she has dedicated many concerts solely to the humane treatment of animals. In honor of her lifelong commitment to animal welfare, a humane society named after Ms. Hemming was founded in Germany.

The program of May 10 recital includes Chopin Etudes, Beethoven Moonlight Sonata, and Liszt "La Campanella."

A portion of the proceeds from this recital will go to The Humane Society of the United States. Ms. Hemming is proudly supporting the work of The Humane Society of the United States and its work to end animal cruelty.
