The Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra continues its season theme "Places in Time" with violinist Yuri Namkung at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, at the Cross in the Woods, Indian River.
Namkung will be featured in a performance of the Violin Concerto in G Minor by Max Bruch. His first violin concerto, Opus 26, was completed in 1866, and then revised with the help of Brahms' friend, Joseph Joachim, and premiered in the revised form by Joachim in 1868. The concerto is an example of 19th century romanticism with lyrical melodies, virtuosic passages and lush harmonies.
Namkung received her bachelor of arts from Columbia University and her master of music from Juilliard, where she studied with Cho-Liang Lin and Donald Weilerstein. She completed a graduate diploma in chamber music at the New England Conservatory. In 2010, she was appointed instructor of violin at Interlochen Arts Academy.
