For the third and final installment of the 2019 fall season concert series, put on by the Dickinson Area Concert Association, Timothy Chooi will be performing Saturday, Nov. 9, at Trinity High School Auditorium.
Chooi is a young violinist, but his talents and accolades are immeasurable with the accomplishments spanning over surprisingly long and jubilant career for his age.
Born in Victoria, BC, Canada, on December 17, 1995, Chooi began his craft at such an early age that he made his orchestral debut at the age of seven. Currently in the process of finishing his Master of Music degree at the Julliard School, Chooi previously studied with Pinkas Zukerman and Ida Kavafian, renowned musicians in their own right.
Chooi has not only competed against some of the world's most gifted and accomplished musicians, but has placed in the elite category time and again.
He was the first prize winner of the 2018 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Hannover Germany; was second prize winner of the 2019 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, Belgium and first prize winner of the Schadt Violin Competition in the United States, 2018-2019.
His audience, according to reviews of his performances, are guided to an emotional place with stunning and vibrant sounds across a diverse musical ensemble. All ages are welcomed, and regardless of taste in music there will be various numbers that are recognizable to most.
Chooi will perform violin and piano pieces including 'Vocalise,' by Rachmaninoff; 'Hungarian Dances,' by Brahms; 'Schindler's List' by Williams; 'Sabre Dance,' by Khachaturian and 'Liebeslied' by Fritz Kreisler.
These famous melodies will surely captivate audiences who may not realize that they've known them prior. This unique program is billed as a generational gap of brilliant music encompassing past and modern musical talents.
