Dear Music Friend,

The Second Sunday Series at Englewood Christian Church will start its sixteenth season on Sunday, September 10, when it presents pianist Xiao Chen and violinist Xenia Deviatkina-Loh.

These two international artists are the 2017 winners of the Frances Walton Competition of the Seattle Ladies Musical Club, and are presented on the Second Sunday Series as the first stop of the Walton Competition tour.  This collaboration of the Second Sunday Series and the Seattle Ladies Musical Club has existed for many years and has been very successful in bringing some outstanding young musicians to Yakima.

Chinese-born Ms. Chen received her MA from Julliard, studying with Jerome Lowenthal.  She is now studying at UCLA, where her recent performance of the Rachmaninoff  Second Piano Concerto received a standing ovation and rave reviews.  On our program she will be playing Beethoven, Schumann, and Richard Danielpour  

Ms. Deviatkina-Loh completed her MA at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and is also now studying at UCLA.  She has performed with many orchestras in Australia and New Zealand, including the Queensland, Canberra and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras.  She will be playing Yseye, Beethoven, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.

We expect their performances to meet or exceed the very high standards established by former Walton winners who have played on the Second Sunday Series. 

The Second Sunday Series concert will be at Englewood Christian Church, 511 N 44th Avenue in Yakima on September 10 at 2:00.  There is no admission charge, although donations will be accepted.  This series is organized and underwritten by Jane and Roger Finch.

Sunday, September 10, at 2:00 at Englewood Christian Church.

Jane and Roger Finch
