The Tryon Concert Association (TCA) announces the upcoming performance of Stefan Jackiw and Joyce Yang. Their performance will be at the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) on Melrose Ave., in Tryon on Friday, January 20 at 8 p.m.
Jackiw began playing the violin at the age of four, and exhibited a natural talent for the instrument. Now, at age 25, he has been recognized as one of his generation’s greatest talents.
Traveling around the globe, Jackiw has performed with a virtual “who’s who” of the musical world. Recently, his solo performance of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the YouTube Symphony Orchestra was seen live on YouTube by more than 30 million people worldwide.
Joining Jackiw on stage is another standout artist of her generation, Joyce Yang.
Yang came to international attention when she became the silver medalist of the 12th Van Cliburn International Competition.
As the youngest contestant, Yang swept many of the awards at this prestigious piano competition. Yang featured in the film documentary about the 2005 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, “In the Heart of Music.”
