Society for the Performing Arts: Nobuyuki Tsujii

Classical pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii has never seen his instrument. Despite being born blind, the Japanese 20-year-old is creating a name for himself as a virtuoso. Fresh off a tie for first at the prestigious Van Cliburn piano competition in Fort Worth, Tsujii will perform a selection of Beethoven and Chopin, hosted by the Society for Performing Arts. 2 p.m. Cullen Theater, Wortham Center. For information, visit www.spahouston.org. $20 to $45.
