Chamber Music | OC’s Young Artist Program will be represented in New York’s Carnegie Hall this April when three participants of the program will be joining their mentors and international guest artists during Chamber Music | OC’s debut recital on April 15, 2017. The participants were selected by Artistic Advisors who heard all 13 participants in two separate master classes at UC Irvine.

Violinist Leo Matsuoka and cellists Reina Cho and Brandon Shin will be featured in the world premiere of Paul Dooley’s Concerto Grosso for Piano Trio and Strings in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall. Violinist Leo Matsuoka sums up this wonderful opportunity:

“Playing in Carnegie Hall is such an honor especially with world-class musicians and my mentors. I am truly blessed I was given this opportunity; it has been my dream ever since I started violin.”

Join us in congratulating all of our Young Artists on what promises to be an incredible concert experience in the world’s most important performance venue!
