Organizers of Neskowin Chamber Music will be hoping for harmony on stage when the series resumes on Sunday, Jan. 7, with a performance from husband-and-wife duo Edward Arron and Jeewon Park.
Arron has gained worldwide recognition for what critics call his “elegant musicianship, impassioned performance, and creative performing,” while Park has won praise from the York Times for her “infectious exuberance.”
A graduate of the Julliard School, Arron started playing the cello at the age of seven and made his New York recital debut in 2000 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Since that time, he has appeared in recital, as a soloist with major orchestras and as a chamber musician throughout North America, Europe and Asia. In 2013, he completed a 10-year residency at the museum’s Artists in Concert series. He has played at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, New York’s Town Hall and the 92nd Street Y. He currently serves on the music faculty at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Park made her piano debut at the age of 12, performing Chopin’s “First Concerto” with the Korean Symphony Orchestra. After winning all the major competitions in Korea she came to the US in 2002. She is also graduate of the Julliard School as well as Yale University and holds a DMA degree from the State University of New York, Stony Brook. She has performed at such major concert halls as the Grace Rainey Rogers Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a number of venues in Korea. She regularly appears at music festivals in New York, Vermont, Seattle and Santa Fe, New Mexico. She frequently collaborates with members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
Sunday’s concert will start at 3 pm in the chapel at Camp Winema, three miles north of Neskowin just off Highway 101.
Tickets are $25 on the door. For more information, call 503-965-6499 or go to www.neskowinchambermusic.org.
