Yalin Chi, a pianist of brilliance and refinement, will perform at The Chapel Restoration on Sunday, April 2, at 4 p.m. The concert, which is free to the public, will feature Franz Schubert, Sonata in G Major; Alban Berg, Piano Sonata and Johannes Brahms, Four Klavierstüke, Op. 119.
A native of Beijing, China, where she made her debut with that city’s Central Opera Orchestra, Ms. Chi has performed in Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall and Kumho Art Hall in Seoul, Korea, among other venues. In 2008 she joined the West Point Band as staff pianist, playing as soloist for the many international diplomats, members of Congress and industry leaders who visit West Point as well as traveling all over the world to perform as its representative. She is also principal keyboardist with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic.
A graduate of Juilliard with bachelor and master’s degrees, Ms. Chi often appears with Joseph Alessi, principal trombone of The New York Philharmonic, Philip Cobb, principal trumpet of the London Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Wan, concertmaster of Montreal Symphony, and Jing Wang, concertmaster of Hong Kong Philharmonic.
The 2017 Sunday Music Series is dedicated to the memory of Theodora J. Nichols, with a gift from her sisters, Marianne Dawkins and board member Marcelline Thomson.
