Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra continues Classics Series with Mozart, Beethoven, and Honegger

The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra continues its classic’s series with “Mozart, Beethoven, and Honegger” at the Victory Theatre on Saturday, January 22 beginning at 7 PM.

The concert opens with Arthur Honegger’s ode to a peaceful morning in the Swiss Alps, Pastorale

d’eté. This work is followed by Mozart’s brilliant Violin Concerto No. 5 “Turkish” performed by internationally acclaimed violinist Timothy Chooi. The concert concludes with the lively and energetic Beethoven Symphony No. 7, a notable example of Beethoven’s compositional personality. Beethoven called this work “most excellent symphony.”

Timothy Chooi, native of Canada, is a popular soloist and recitalist, sought after as much for his passionate performances as for his wide-ranging repertoire. Recent honors include Second Prize, Belgium’s world-renowned 2019 Queen Elisabeth Competition, First Prize, the 2018 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Germany, and First Prize, the 2018 Schadt Violin Competition in the USA.

Recent performances include engagement with The Belgian National Orchestra, Luxembourg Chamber Orchestra, and l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, plus recital tours of Belgium and the United States. In addition to having already performed with every major orchestra in his home country of Canada, Timothy Chooi has also played with the Brussels Philharmonic, Santa Barbara Symphony, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and made his Carnegie Hall debut.

Chooi studied at Juilliard and is currently enrolled in Juilliard’s prestigious Artist Diploma program. Mr. Chooi lives in Philadelphia and is currently a Professor of Violin at the University of Ottawa. He performs on the 1717 Windsor-Weinstein Stradivarius on a generous loan from the Canada Council for the Arts.
