VMO Newsletter: February 2012

In keeping with its annual tradition, Maestro Ken Hsieh and the VMO is proud to present the VMO Spring Concert – “Musical Awakenings’ in March to celebrate the legacy of the late Maestro Morihiro Okabe and to welcome the spring season.

March 11, 2012 | 2PM | Michael J. Fox Theatre

The VMO “Musical Awakenings – a Morihiro Okabe Kinen Concert” concert will feature Maestro Ken Hsieh, Kemuel Wong, pianist Hannah Han and violinist Dominic Woo. Hannah is an 18-year old pianist, currently studying at UBC and has been delighting audiences since her first performance for Alexina Louie when she was nine years old! Hannah has performed in Korea and recently performed with our local Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Not only is Hannah musically talented, she also has an aptitude for languages, speaking English, French, Korean and some Japanese! Hannah will be performing Schumann’s piano concerto in a minor, which is the only concerto he ever finished. Click here to hear an excerpt. Hannah, Dominic and the VMO musicians will also perform works by Rossini, Dvorak, Beethoven and a new piece of work by Composer-in-Residence, Alain Mayrand.
