Telemann viola concerto


On May 11, 2018, I performed the Telemann viola concerto with the South Bay Philharmonic, a volunteer community orchestra in Silicon Valley.


Back in 2010 I performed the Tchaikovsky “Mozartiana” concertmaster solo with the Arlington Philharmonic, but this was my first solo performance of a concerto. I’ve been blogging about it here and on my sister blog at
