Back to the Series from the NJIO 15th Anniversary Concert. This is André Emelianoff who is Hyewon Kim's teacher at Julliard School of Music Pre-College Division. Hyewon was featured earlier in this series. They were invited to play with the NJIO as soloists and as a Duet. It was a wonderful experience. I shot this during the pre-concert warm up.
