Next Tuesday, the concert-hall will host an informal lunchtime concert given by the Radiance Trio, led by first-year Music Scholar and violinist, Lydia Cheng.
The Radiance Trio was formed in the summer of 2013 by violinist, Lydia Cheng (University of Kent), cellist, Angel Ji (University of Toronto), and pianist, Marcus Chiam (University of Toronto) after their trio debut of Butterfly Lovers at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China. The name is taken from the debut composition with the same title by the trio’s pianist and composer, Marcus Chiam.
During their music tour to China in 2014, they volunteered and performed at the Tsinghua University Hospital as well as a local Beijing orphanage in China, and gave performances in various venues including the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. In 2014, the ensemble entered its first ever competition under the tutelage of Mr. Ding Huang and received scholarship from the Ontario Provincial CMC Committee for their performance as national finalists in the Canadian Music Competition. Radiance Trio currently continues to work with the expert coaching of Mr. Ding Huang in Toronto.
The concert is on Tuesday 16 February at 1.10pm, and features Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio and Butterfly Lovers; admission free, find out more on the group’s Facebook Event page here.
