The Ring of 1000 Souls and Sound

  • Alice Tully Hall Lincoln Center New York, NY, 10023 United States

WCO’s third concert, “The Ring of 1000 Souls & Sound” was presented as part of {Project Violin} “Bonds Made of a Thousand Tones”, a post tsunami-nuclear explosion program in Japan.  The violin used in the performance of Vaughn Williams’ “The Lark Ascending” was made from the debris from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan in March 2011.  The violin maker Mr. Muneyuki Nakazawa wishes the violin to be played 1,000 times as a way to remember the victims as well as celebrate the incredible strength of people when confronted by adversity.  The WCO performed Dvorak’s “New World Symphony” in dedication to the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake, Hurricane Sandy, 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Texas oil disaster, and the tornado in Oklahoma.  Joining the orchestra were violin soloist Kevin Chen and piano soloist Hsiang John Tu.
