Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras' benefit concert got broadcast on radio channel WQED!

Last night, on February 3, I joined my friends at Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras (TRYPO) in their benefit concert at the beautiful Calvary United Methodist Church in Pittsburgh, PA. TRYPO is raising funds to send their kids to NYC to perform at Carnegie Hall this June, so I was very happy to perform for such a great cause.  

It was my personal premiere performance of Brahms' beautiful Horn Trio, which I performed together with my friends and colleagues Laura Motchalov (violin), and Lindsey Wood-Nova (horn). Further on the program were other great works performed by members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

The concert was recorded by Jim Cunningham of WQED radio, and later broadcast on the channel. Here's to my first time on US radio!
