Hard work makes for beautiful music this Sunday

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Not long ago, Music in Landrum met a hardworking 13-year-old Suzuki violin student named Ivana Carlson. As part of its mission, Music in Landrum assists highly promising and hard working music students. Music in Landrum was able to provide Carlson with an instrument and lessons with a top instructor and performer, Dr. Eun Sun Lee, a doctoral graduate of The Juilliard School and new resident in Tryon.

On Sunday, March 12 at 3 p.m. at Landrum United Methodist Church, Carlson will perform one of the most difficult and beautiful pieces, Bruch’s Violin Concerto, First Movement, along with Vitali’s Ciaccona in G Minor.

Along with Carlson, four additional students will perform, including Mathew Hammel, whose sister stunned last year, and the gifted Chong brothers from Greer, S.C.

It is hard to imagine that this area has two doctorates from The Juilliard School. The other is Dr. Elizabeth Child, concert pianist and teacher. The students’ progress has been helped even further as Dr. Child has spent untold hours rehearsing with these gifted and appreciative young violinists.

Sunday’s short program will be followed by new Belgian chocolate and ganache treats with chocolate violins.
