Often it doesn't matter if the goals are small and self-centered or big and noble. The absence of a big dream or goal doesn't make ones life less worthy or less meaningful. By pursuing the next immediate step and then the next of any goal or brilliant idea, the journey can produce excellent results, and a very fulfilling life! Ann Chang is an active soloist and lecturer in the U.S. and Europe. She is in demand as pianist and teacher, and her recent appointment as a Fulbright Faculty Scholar in Belgium (Brussels) has given her an opportunity to expand her expertise in Classic Performance Practice. She is also Artistic Director of the Lied Center for Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska. In addition to her busy career as a performer and presenter, Dr. Chang is Artist-in-Residence and Associate Professor at the University of Nebraska School of Music. Leveraging her extensive knowledge in arts presenting and management, she also is Director of the University's Music Entrepreneurship Program where she helps the next generation of musicians think creatively and thrive in the performing arts.

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)
