Young Musicians in Action — Solo Violin Performances

It’s fall again, and the beginning of another exciting school year, to be filled with passion of learning, community involvements, and fun of life for Fremont parents and kids.  On October 4th, three accomplished young violinists from Mission San Jose High School, together with their violin teacher, Mr. Ker Qi, and Pianist Dr. Anny Cheng, will hold a charitable violin concert.  This concert will be hosted by Ms. Diana Qi, the first cover girl of the Miss Singtao Pageant.

The purpose of this concert is to raise fund for Fremont School District Junior High Music Program, with a goal to help Fremont kids get better exposure and enrichment in musical education.  All donations from this concert will be managed through Fremont Unified Student Store (FUSS).  FUSS is a nonprofit organization formed in 2012 to help meet the many needs in Fremont Unified School District in California. The Mission of FUSS is to support Fremont Unified School District by informing, motivating, engaging and partnering with our community to generate funds for our schools and programs.

The three teenage performers are Hanlin Wang, Michelle Zhang and Iris Lin.  Hanlin is a sophomore from Mission San Jose High School.  He is sensitive, caring, and driven, playing violin since the age of 5.  Hanlin is a member of the California Youth Symphony (CYS) Senior Orchestra and principal of the 2013 CYS Associate Orchestra second violin section. Hanlin has recently toured and performed in various concert halls across several countries in Eastern Europe. Last year, he performed in a benefit concert in San Jose to raise money for the Prince of Peace Foundation to help Orphanage in China.  Michelle is a sophomore in Mission San Jose high School. A dedicated and passionate violin player, Michelle Zhang has been studying violin for 9 years. Under the teachings of Mr. Sheng-Shiong Lin, she became California Youth Symphony’s co-concertmaster for Associate Orchestra, and was accepted into Senior Orchestra, where she just went on international tour on. Currently studying under Mr. Ker Qi, she has played at numerous concert venues and volunteers with community centers to help the elders experience a taste of music first-hand.  Iris is a junior at Mission San Jose High School with a great enthusiasm for music and a passion for the arts. Iris has been playing violin since the age of 9, and she started playing in her junior high orchestra at the age of 11 as the first stand. At the age of 13, she was accepted into the San Jose Youth Symphony Philharmonic Orchestra as the youngest musician in the group, and went on tour with SJYS to six different European countries in the summer of 2013. 

Violin learning is arduous; students sometimes shed tears and struggle in the process.  However, Mr. Qi always provides guidance and encouragement.  Students who have gone through this strenuous learning process eventually gain self-confidence and become passionate towards music.  The discipline they acquire from violin learning is applicable to other life experiences.  They know that hard work and passion is the key to the success in life. 

Mr. Qi is a long time Fremont resident and a renowned violin teacher who has taught many bay area youth.  Many of his students have moved on to become competition winners and professional musicians. Mr. Qi graduated from Shanghai Conservatory of Music.  In 1985 he received a full scholarship to study at the University of South Carolina; he obtained both Master Degrees for Musical Performance from USC and Music Education from Illinois State University.  He has served in various orchestras as the Concert Master.  Over several decades, he has been giving rigorous and passionate teaching and cultivated many excellent violinists. He not only teaches children superb violin performance skills, but also teaches them how to use their skills to serve the community and make a better world.  

All the music will have piano accompaniment by Dr. Anny Cheng.  Dr. Cheng is an active pianist with a doctoral degree in Collaborative Piano from Arizona State University.  She was a guest artist with Arizona MusicFest, the principal vocal coach and musical director of the Tanglewood Institute’s Young Artist Vocal Program and the coach and staff pianist at Cy-Fair College in Houston.  She collaborated with tenor Allen Cathcart, founder of Peninsula Teen Opera and West Bay Opera.  

The concert will be hosted by elegant Ms. Diana Qi, a multi-talented, confident musician herself and an ambassador for several non-profit organizations.  Ms. Qi is the first cover girl of the first Miss Singtao Pageant, voted as Miss Talent, Miss Sunshine, and Miss Friendship in the Miss Chinese Cosmos pageant.

The concert will be held at Fremont Adult and Continuing Education, 4700 Calaveras Ave., Fremont, CA 94538, between 2PM and 4PM on Saturday October the 4th. The music line up ranges from Eastern to Western.  The program includes famous violin concertos, such Mendelssohn Violin Concerto E Minor, Meditation from Thaïs, Hungarian Dance, and Carmen Fantasy.
