Yonkers Philharmonic Free Concert - Saunders Trade High School
183 Palmer Road - 914-631-5574
Yonkers, NY 10705
Description: The Yonkers Philharmonic's second concert of the Gala 50th Anniversary Season. The program features Andy Lin playing Hoffmeister's Viola Concerto, Mendelssohn's Fingal's Cave Overture, Brahms Second Symphony, and 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 human's, 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 at 2:15 pm. Like us on Facebook and hold the date of March 10th for the Beethoven 9th Gala Concert at SUNY Purchase.
