Llewellyn Kingman Sanchez Werner is a 13-year-old music prodigy from Los Angeles and recently brought an Iraqi audience to their feet after performing with the national symphony orchestra.
The concert comes as the city struggles to revive its once bustling cultural scene.
Llewellyn studies at the acclaimed Julliard School of Music in New York City and played Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" to the crowd of more than 250 guests.
The American began learning piano at the age of two and composed his very first piece at the age of five.
When Llewellyn was only six years old, he already was a full-time college student studying music and today is studying for his second degree.
He currently studies piano with Yoheved Kaplinsky and Ilya Itin in New York
