Internationally acclaimed piano duo iAN&ANi (cellist Ian Maksin and pianist Ani Gogova) perform music of Maurice Ravel, Rosion Shchedrin and Astor Piazzolla at TEDx Naperville 2012 and share personal stories of the impact classical music has had on their lives and those of their audience. They are joined by guest artists, dancers Lucas Segovia and Kara Zimmerman, courtesy of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
