Derek Bermel: A Shout, A Whisper, and a TraceLalo: Symphonie EspagnolBeethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
Janet Sung’s first appearance with the TSO was in November
2010 when she performed the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. Called “one of the outstanding young
violinists of her generation” by the great Dorothy Delay, Sung was a protégé of the legendary teacher and performer Josef Gingold. She holds the post of associate professor of
music at DePaul University
in Chicago and
is equally adept as a performer and teacher. Janet Sung is very dedicated to education and working with young people. During her last visit to Tacoma, she showed up at a Tacoma Youth Symphony Association rehearsal and spent 15 or 20 minutes playing and talking to the young musicians.
