A trio of young classical phenoms will open the 2024 Winter Music Recital Series with a thrilling evening in Harris Concert Hall! The wide-ranging program includes a variety of works from the Eagles’ instantly recognizable tune, “Hotel California,” to Korngold’s beautiful Suite from Much Ado About Nothing, to the Danse Russe from Stravinsky’s Petrushka.
Recognized as an artist of impassioned energy, interpretive integrity, and vibrant communication, AMFS alumna and star Simone Porter’s “silken-toned virtuosity puts her right up there with the finest interpreters of her generation.” (Chicago Classical Review). Since making her professional solo debut at age 10, Porter has debuted with major orchestras like the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic and received a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Described as “one of those special talents that comes along once in a lifetime” (Toronto Star), since his orchestral debut at age 11, violinist Blake Pouliot has performed with the orchestras of Philadelphia, Aspen, Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas, Montreal, Toronto, San Francisco, and Seattle, among many others. Pouliot’s debut album earned a 2019 Juno Award nomination for Best Classical Album. He has been NPR’s Performance Today Artist-in-Residence and won the Grand Prize at the 2016 Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal Manulife Competition.
Fellow AMFS alumna Hsin-I Huang brings in-demand skills as a pianist to round out the trio. Her 2017 album with violinist Pouliot earned 5 stars from BBC Music Magazine and was nominated for “Classical Album of the Year” at the JUNO awards.
