Guest pianist to perform at UCO

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma School of Music will welcome Young-Hyun Cho, professional pianist and educator, to campus for a special performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Radke Fine Arts Theatre in the UCO Center for Transformative Learning. The concert is free and open to the public.

Cho will give a solo performance featuring compositions by various composers including Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms and Olivier Messiaen.           

Cho also will conduct a master class for Central music students during her visit to Central. The master class will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the Radke Fine Arts Theatre. The class is also open to the public.

“As every artist brings something different to the piano, viewing Dr. Cho’s recital will give our students insight into the kind of artist she is. They will gain a tremendous amount of knowledge just hearing her play,” said David Forbat, head of the piano studies/keyboard studies division at Central.

“To hear an artist play and then teach a master class will provide students with a clear picture of what the artist represents.”

Cho currently serves as Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Texas at Arlington. She received her D.M.A. from the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music and her master’s degree and graduate performance diploma from Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University.           

Cho is a uniquely versatile pianist, appearing frequently as orchestral soloist, solo recitalist, and chamber musician. She is a featured soloist, appearing with such orchestras as the Eastman Symphony Orchestra, the International Chamber Ensemble of Rome, the Korean Broadcasting System Symphony Orchestra and the University of Texas at Arlington Orchestra, among others.  

FOR MORE information about Cho’s performance or for directions to the theater, call the School of Music at 974-5004. For a complete listing of UCO College of Fine Arts and Design performances and events, visit www.uco.edu/cfad/events.
