Ray Chen Leads:
NEW CENTURY CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Sun, November 13 @ 5:00 pm
Winner of the Yehudi Menuhin (2008) and Queen Elisabeth (2009) Competitions, Australian/Taiwanese violinist Ray Chen joins New Century as Guest Concertmaster leading a program of Mozart, Elgar and Britten.
Born in Taiwan and raised in Australia, Ray was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music at age 15, where he studied with Aaron Rosand and was supported by Young Concert Artists. He plays the 1715 “Joachim” Stradivarius violin on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation.
He is the first ever classical musician to be invited to write a regular blog about his life as a touring soloist for the largest Italian publishing house, RCS Rizzoli (Corriere della Sera, Gazzetta dello Sport, Max). In his unstinting efforts to break down barriers between classical music, fashion and pop culture, he is supported by Giorgio Armani and was recently featured in Vogue magazine.
