In which we discover the violin

Thrilled to be the first ever violinist performing at the Croton Hall!

*Note: This is a house concert generously sponsored by Mr. William Pike via GroupMuse.

After two years of mostly piano concerts, "Croton Hall" has discovered the violin! We are honored to have Jean Huang, accomplished violinist and near-doctorate diplomate at the New England Conservatory of Music, as our inaugural violinist. I asked her to play a variety of styles and she came up with the theme, "Postcards from around the world," which you can see in the probable program below. Please visit her website at

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Souvenir d'un lieu cher Op. 42 
Kosaku Yamada: Japanese folk tune "Red Dragonfly (akatombo)”
Carl Engel: "Sea-shell" 
Deng Yu-Shian: Taiwanese folk song "Longing for the Spring Breeze" 
J.S. Bach: Partita No.2 for solo violin in D minor BWV. 1004
Béla Bartók: Romanian Folk Dances Sz. 56

As always here at Croton Hall, Jean will briefly discuss each piece before playing it.

We hope you will join us, and with luck, be among the first to acknowledge Jean as a new Doctor of Music Arts.
