It was such a pleasure to get to coach these young talented ladies! Their performance of Dvorak “American” Quartet was truly beautiful. This is why I absolutely love teaching and coaching!
On Sunday, May 4, my students at Hyde Park Suzuki Institute performed at the Reva and David Logan Center! It has been such a great 2 years working with Hilary, Catherine, and Lucinda. The students have worked so hard and look so fabulous in these photos! I am beyond impressed with their posture, stage presence, and musicality. Here are some of my favorite photos from the event. I am particularly excited about the 3rd photo, which is of my viola students from the winter term.
On April 10, 2014, I had the joy of performing the Brahms c minor Piano Quartet with Jaime Gorgojo, violin, Hope Shepherd, cello, and Yueun Kim, piano, at the University of Chicago’s Tea Time Concert Series. We had a huge audience–thanks to all the Hyde Park Suzuki families and our friends who came out to support us.
Listen to the first movement of the performance below.
We had a great concert Saturday night playing at the Elbo Room! Big thanks to Hilary and friends who came out to see us! We introduced a few new songs like Wake Me Up by Avicii and Unbelievers by Vampire Weekend. Got good reviews from the venue and the crowd so we hope to be back there soon. JSOH is booking a lot of summer shows right now–mostly out in the suburbs for concerts in the park. I am pretty excited because they should be big crowds and good energy after this horrible winter.
