Classical Note Philharmonic Brings Classical Music Back to Life this Wednesday
Wednesday, February 21, 2018
The Classical Note Philharmonic will perform romantic serenades of Tchaikovsky, Dvorjok, and an original composition by their Music Director and Conductor, David Jeong, at Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center on Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 at 7:30 pm. Tickets ($30/person) are available at the door.
“We invite you to join us on February 21st to witness a sensational debut performance by a passionate orchestra filled with musicians united to save classical music. We welcome all supporters and music lovers to join in this daring and exciting journey,” Jeong said.
In his role as Music Director, Jeong also emphasizes that, in order to reach the goal of keeping classical music alive, it is vital that classical musicians also be kept “alive” – which means creating opportunities to support high caliber musicians. The musicians who came together under Jeong’s leadership to create the Classical Note Philharmonic are united by the idea that classical music must continue for future generations.
One way Jeong hopes to achieve this is through showcasing various genres of classical music. In addition to reviving traditional compositions, Jeong plans to include feature film and symphonic music he composed with experience as previous Sony Music and Universal Music artist.
“I created the Classical Note Philharmonic in 2018 to give high-quality musicians the opportunity for vibrant performances, as well as to create more jobs to keep their craft alive and continue pursuing their talents and lifelong calling in music,” he said. “This has become my life’s mission: to create opportunities for musicians and stage classical music for the modern audience.”
Jeong was born in Korea and raised in Russia, and is presently an emerging conductor in his last year of doctoral studies in orchestral conducting at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of Arts. Recently, Jeong released a solo piano album of original compositions, Run Away With Me, through Classical Note, Inc., which is available on iTunes.
