On Sunday, March 19, 2017, the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra will be joined by brilliant violinist Jinjoo Cho to perform Glazunov’s infamously challenging Violin Concerto. Cho, a recent winner of the Gold Medal at Indianapolis, is world-renowned for her technical talents, making this a spectacular and unforgettable evening. The Symphony’s new Principal Conductor Guillermo Figueroa will be leading the performance, with another Romantic-era piece – Mahler’s Fifth Symphony – concluding the majestic and transformational evening.
About Jinhoo Cho
Acclaimed violinist Jinjoo Cho has been described as “one of the most vibrant, engaging and charismatic violinists of her generation.” Cho made her first appearance on the international music scene when she garnered the First Grand Prize and Radio Canada’s People’s Choice Award at the 2006 Montreal International Musical Competition at age 17.
Her performance of the complex and gorgeous Shostakovich Violin Concerto had the Times Argus of Montreal declaring she possessed “an undeniable charisma and depth…with an intense lyricism and heartfelt tenderness that sent shivers up the spine.” Since then, Cho has become an international sensation and been featured in performances at Carnegie Hall alongside the New York String Orchestra and so many more.
