With 101 Pianists, the foundation brings together 100 young piano students from one city for a unique social music performance with Lang Lang. To date, this program has inspired over 150,000 audiences in 18 cities worldwide.

Every two years, LLIMF welcomes a new class of Young Scholars to the LLIMF family. The students, selected by Lang Lang and his teacher Gary Graffman from hundreds of applicants, receive mentorship, tutelage and unique performance opportunities.

The scholars are also encouraged to participate in the Play It Forward program, which brings the healing properties and joys of music and art to groups of all ages and abilities in their community.

On October 10, 2018, LLIMF will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a benefit gala at Cipriani 25 Broadway in Manhattan, New York City. Lang will lead a performance featuring the foundation's Young Scholars during the gala.

The evening will also feature Golden Globe-winning actor Alec Baldwin as the host, as well as internationally acclaimed tenor Roberto Alagna, twelve-time Grammy Award Nominee Ledisi, and three-time Grammy Award winning artist Wyclef Jean.
