Concert for One Korea

On Saturday evening February 2, I had the great joy of hearing probably my favorite classical performer, Ms. Elizabeth Woo.

The occasion was a symphony performance to benefit Korean Unification at Merkin Hall of the Kaufman theatre.

Elizabeth played two masterful pieces supported by the Ureuk Symphony under the leadership of conductor Christopher Lee, Tchaikovsky's Pezzo Capriccioso, and Rimsky-Korsakov's Fantasy on Russian Theme for Violin and Orchestra.

Other soloists for the evening included Soprano Kyong-Jin Lim, and cellist Jacques Lee Wood.

Special gratitude to Elizabeth and all the Happy Tao family together with Sabonim, Khan Bada.
