Beethoven’s Violin Concerto

Celebrate 250 years since Beethoven’s birth with a performance of his beloved violin concerto by stunning young soloist Willard Zhong.  After interval is Schubert’s tuneful 3rd Symphony, written in his spare time when he was still only 18 and a full-time schoolmaster.

Soloist:  Willard Zhong, Violin

Willard Zhong’s creed as a violinist is to connect with the people of today with raw and honest expression.

As a soloist he has performed the Sibelius, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn and Wieniawski 2nd violin concerti with various orchestras. Willard is also a lover of chamber music, having participated in the Mimir festival emerging artist’s programme in Texas and the Rippon Lea concert series, learning and collaborating with many incredible musicians. As an orchestral musician he has been the concertmaster of ANGO, the Australasia Orchestra, the Melbourne University String Ensemble, Philharmonic Ensemble, and the Melbourne University Symphony Orchestra. He has also played in and been soloist in various international orchestra tours in Japan, Europe, America and China.

Willard hopes to continue to learn and share his music as honestly as he can. He is incredibly grateful to all the amazing mentors that surround him and all the fantastic music he has been lucky enough to enjoy!
