Chamber Strings presents fall concert
On Friday night, Nov. 11, the Lee University's Chamber Strings presented their fall concert, “An Exhilarating Musical Voyage” conducted by Xiaoqing Yu. The Chamber Strings opened with Mozart’s “Divertimento” followed by seven other performances.
The Chamber Strings consists of various violinists and violists, cellists, and bassists from Lee University.
The featured guest violin soloist was Bing Han, who was originally born in China but currently resides in Bangkok, Thailand with her family and two sons.
Han started to play the violin when she was five years old at Tianjin Conservatory of Music and has had many accomplishments throughout her career.
“I’m most looking forward to learning about Lee University and the meeting the faculty while I’m here,” Han said.
She played along side of the Chamber Strings as well as had two of her own solo pieces.
“We have only practiced together two times before today, the students here have practiced very hard,” Han said.
Chamber Strings player Wiran Zhao said many hours of preparation and work went into being ready for the show this semester.
“I’m very excited for this. We have prepared for this concert all semester, and we have an amazing feature guest violinist from Thailand here to play with us tonight,” Zhao said.
“Her gymnastic finger dances will bring great satisfaction to Russian music,” Yu said.
Han is here for two weeks, one of those weeks will be at Lee University and the second week will be at Legoland with her 6 year old son.
The concert came to a close with Dreznin’s “Circus Fantasy” and a solo from Han.
“It’s beautiful, it’s wonderful, they do amazing work,” Bri Sullivan, student at Lee, said.
