Famed pianist Lang Lang has raised more than $2 million for music education at a charity concert in New York City.

The Lang Lang International Music Foundation has hosted its "Lang Lang and Friends Gala Concert Dinner" in Manhattan.

The funds raised will support the foundation's programs, such as the Keys of Inspiration, which Lang Lang says started several years ago and is now well implemented.

"We've started to move forward our ideas to create the method, which is called the Keys of Inspiration, in public schools in America and abroad. And now, two years later, we know exactly what we are going to do. We know the method, we know the teachers, we know the schools. So we have a 100% perfect plan, so now we can do a much better job for the world. "

The Keys of Inspiration program has been implemented in five cities worldwide, bringing music education to over 2,500 students.

The foundation aims to expand the program to 49 schools by 2021, benefiting more than 2 million students. The latest charity concert was the third one held by Lang Lang in New York City. His previous concerts in 2013 and 2014 both raised more than 1 million dollars each.
