The Florida Chamber Music Project (FCMP) will feature four of Robert Schumann’s works at their March 10 concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. They will be joined by pianist Hyunsoon Whang for Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E flat major.
“We are excited to be joined by pianist Hyunsoon Whang for this concert,” said Susan Pardue, FCMP artistic director. “We will be taking advantage of this and featuring her in three solo pieces by Schumann to start the program. We will then join forces for Schumann’s lovely piano quartet.”
Korean-American pianist Hyunsoon Whang is an active performer and a dedicated teacher. Since the age of 12, she has performed hundreds of concerts in the United States, Canada, Europe, Iceland, Japan and Korea. She studied at the North Carolina School of the Arts, the St. Louis Conservatory, The Juilliard School and earned a doctorate from Indiana University under the tutelage of legendary György Sebők. A recipient of Oklahoma Governor’s Arts and Education Award, Whang holds the McMahon Endowed Chair in Music at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma.
