I am off this morning for a productive rehearsal on Waxman, Korngold, and Bernstein for the PSO benefit I am playing this weekend with pianist, Brad Clark.
I will never forget how fascinated the students in France were with the Waxman Carmen Fantasy when I brought it over from the USA. They only knew the Sarasate and boy were they in for a treat!
I am so lucky to be paying this beautiful and challenging work with The Piedmont Symphony in 2015!
Our fundraiser this weekend is to raise funds and support for a commission for the following season by John Wineglass. Mr Wineglass has offered to write a Rhapsody for violin and orchestra for me to be premiered with the Piedmont Symphony in 2015-2016. Thanks to everyone who has offered to support this project so far!
Many thanks to great studio parent, Michi Chang for this beautiful picture capturing the joy of Sunday’s event. What a great group!
