Are you hyped up for this concert?! You should be!

On Sunday, February 8th at 4 PM, we will be featuring five of our International Competitors: 1st Place Winner Aldric Gozon, with Celine Tseng, Megan Pham, Hong-An Hoang, and Francis Le. These are the five very hard working and talented students who competed in the Los Angelas Franz Liszt International Competition that took place last November. We also will have a very exciting guest performance.

Please welcome to the stage, Drew Tretick! Drew Tretick is an amazing violin virtuoso known throughout the world. He graduated from the Julliard School of Music and has performed with the London Symphony Orchestra and Andrea Bocelli. He has recorded for cinema, and the Olympic Champions On Ice. He has traveled and performed in Asia, Canada, Europe, and throughout the United States. And now he is coming to Little Chopin! You may read up more on his bio and his official website is here.

See his performance of “It’s Time to Say Goodbye” on PBS television below:

He will be performing several pieces with Aldric Gozon as well as his own set of repertoire. We’ll see you there! This is one event NOT to miss!
