Yonkers Philharmonic Concert
Sunday, Jan 13, 2013 at 3:00am
183 Palmer Road, Yonkers, NY
Come join the Yonkers Philharmonic Concert on January 13, 2013 for our second concert of our Gala 50th Anniversary Season. The program will feature Andy Lin playing Hoffmeister's Viola Concerto, Mendelssohn's Fingal's Cave Overture, Brahms Second Symphony and as a special treat, Engraft composed by Jeeyoung Kim, a concerto for Erhu and strings.
The Erhu is a two-stringed, bowed, traditional Chinese instrument. Through the Erhu, composer Jeeyoung Kim expresses the deep and mixed emotions of her Asian roots. The Erhu gives off a timbre almost comparable to a humans and is as exciting to watch being played as it is unusual in sound.
Maestro James Sadewhite will give a brief pre-concert lecture in the Saunders High School auditorium starting at 2:15 pm.
Like us on Facebook and hold the date of March 10th for the Beethoven 9th Gala Concert at SUNY Purchase.
