ZLATOMIR FUNG Concert
January 31 @ 8:00 pm
Fung has been a soloist with the Ann Arbor Symphony, the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, the Santa Cruz Symphony, Boston Pops, the Lausanne Sinfonietta, the Grand Rapids Symphony, the State Philharmonic of Sibiu, and the New England Philharmonic, among others.
He won a Davidson Fellows Scholarship for his project, “Folk Music Influence in the Classical Tradition.” He is one of only twenty students across the country to receive this honor. He considers this an extraordinary honor; “to be listed alongside some of the most brilliant young minds alive today is surreal.”
He has been featured on NPR’s radio show From the Top a number of times, as well as on Performance Today.
In reflecting, Fung says, “My selection of performances gives voice to the more unusual crevices of the cello repertoire. Music is a mystical art: it can at once dazzle the intellect and inspire heartfelt nostalgia. I do very much hope that the nature of my performances–both in the quality of playing and the selection of music–touches audiences, giving them an emotional and spiritual outlet.”
