This Slavic-themed program, conducted by Music Director Barbara Yahr, features longtime Metropolitan Opera Orchestra violinist Ming-Feng Hsin leading the orchestra in Dvorak's moving Romance and as soloist in Glazunov's elegant Violin Concerto. The concert concludes with Rachmaninoff's rhapsodic, seldom-heard Third Symphony. Reception with the musicians following the concert.

A native of Taiwan, Ming Feng Hsin's musical career began as a violin soloist after winning the Glasgow International Violin Competition at the age of 15. He subsequently soloed with the Scottish National Orchestra and the BBC Orchestra and was hailed by the Scotsman as "destined to be one of the giants of the next generation." A protege of Yehudi Menuhin, Mr. Hsin has performed throughout Europe, America and Asia as both soloist and chamber musician. Mr. Hsin is also an accomplished conductor. After getting a conducting degree from Juilliard with Otto Werner Mueller, he has worked with numerous orchestras throughout the world, and has led productions of the operas Aida, Flying Dutchman, La Boheme, and Ballo in Maschera.

$20 suggested donation; $10 students/seniors.
