Renowned Violinist to Perform at UW Wednesday
February 10, 2011 — Violinist Chee-Yun, who has performed with the world's foremost orchestras, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, in the University of Wyoming Fine Arts Center concert hall.
Tickets for the concert, part of the spring Cultural Programs series, cost $24 for general admission and $19 for students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at the Wyoming Union and Fine Arts Center box offices. Call (307) 766-6666 for ticket information.
"Chee-Yun is an extremely expressive player, with a beautiful, warm tone, and a warm personality to match," says Cedric Reverand, UW Cultural Programs director. "We had booked her previously, but had to postpone because she broke her collarbone. Now that it's healed, we can finally present her."
Chee-Yun made her American debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 13, and won the Avery Fisher Career Grant and Young Concert Artists International Award. Since then, she has collaborated around the world with such conductors as Mstislav Rostropovich, Michael Tilson Thomas and Pinchas Zukerman
She has appeared on National Public Radio's "Prairie Home Companion," and on an episode of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
