Special Livestream from our friends at Toronto’s Glenn Gould School!
This Friday at 8 PM (following the Hanneke Cassel & Mike Block virtual concert), enjoy a special livestream from the Royal Conservatory of Music Orchestra, featuring pianist Sae Yoon Chon performing Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto.
|Barry Shiffman, Artistic Director of the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, gushes about Sae Yoon Chon:|
“Sae Yoon approached this project with extraordinary positivity in the face of the vastly changed landscape of the pandemic. As we saw at Rockport Chamber Music Festival, he is a born communicator with a great intensity supported by the important listening skills of an experienced chamber player. This performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with the young musicians of The Glenn Gould School is so uplifting. This new generation shares our growing desire to get back to the stage, and gives me confidence for the future.”

His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers. John McCutcheon was scheduled to appear at Old Sloop Coffeehouse this fall, and we are delighted to present this virtual concert. The concert will be presented on the Mandolin streaming platform.
