Next Concert


Cho-Liang Lin - violin
Jon Kimura Parker - piano

Beethoven Three Sonatas for Violin and Piano Op. 30

Sunday, December 3, 2017
Reception Starting at 6:30 - Concert at 7:00

This concert brings together two internationally touring concert musicians performing a set of Beethoven Violin / Piano Sonatas. Each has performed separately with the Woodlands Salon Series. It is going to be a real treat having them here together.

Violinist Cho-Liang (Jimmy) Lin's concert engagements reflect his wide-ranging musical activities. Performing on several continents, he appears as soloist with orchestras of Detroit, Toronto, Dallas, Houston, Nashville, San Diego and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra; in Europe with the Bergen Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, and the English Chamber Orchestra; and in Asia with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Malaysia Philharmonic, and Bangkok Symphony. In recent seasons, Mr. Lin has expanded his orchestral engagements to include performances as both soloist and conductor and continues as Music Director of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest. He was invited to join the faculty of the Juilliard School in 1991. More recently he was appointed professor of violin at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. He plays the 1715 "Titian" Stradivarius.

Who could forget our 10th anniversary, 50th concert spectacular with two pianos and 4 pianists pulled together by Jon Kimura (Jackie) Parker? Known for his passionate artistry and engaging stage presence, pianist Jon Kimura Parker has performed as guest soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Wolfgang Sawallisch in Carnegie Hall, toured Europe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Andre Previn, and shared the stage with Jessye Norman at Berlin’s Philharmonie. A true Canadian ambassador of music, Mr. Parker has given command performances for Queen Elizabeth II, the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Prime Ministers of Canada and Japan. He is an Officer of The Order of Canada, his country’s highest civilian honor. A committed educator, Jon Kimura Parker is Professor of Piano at The Shepherd School of Music at Rice University. His students have won international piano competitions, performed with major orchestras across the U.S., and given recitals in Amsterdam, Beijing, New York and Moscow.

Since this concert is on a Sunday, we will be starting one hour earlier than normal; appetizers and wine being served at 6:30 and the concert starting a bit after 7:00.
