The Lu’s Brothers Violin Concert
We are very excited to announce that TCCAA and Frank’s Violin Studio will host the first Tri-cities Chinese American Summer Concert at the Kamiakin High School Auditorium from 7:00pm to 8:30pm on July 27th. It is our great honor to have the world-famous violinist, Siqing Lu, who will be visiting Tri-cities during that time, perform with his two violinist brothers, Siyuan (Frank) Lu and Sihong Lu. It will be for the first time ever that the three brothers perform together on the same stage since their adulthood. Their family members and Frank’s students will join them performing as well. This event will be a charity concert. The three violinists volunteered to perform in this concert in order to enrich the cultural and art activities in our community. All funds raised will be used to first cover the concert expenses, and the rest will contribute to a fund managed by TCCAA for future cultural and art activities . For example, we may continue to host summer concerts in the coming years, focusing on different instruments, so that all talented musicians can have the opportunity to show their talents. Again, The Concert will be held on July 27, 7:00-8:30 pm, at the Kamiakin High School Auditorium. Please mark your calendar, and the details about this event and tickets will be announced soon.
