Last Concert by the Celeste Solo Ensemble
with Jiwon Evelyn Kwark (violin) and Hyunji Park (piano)

The Violin and Piano Duo Concert will be performed by Jiwon Evelyn Kwark (violin) and Hyunji Park (piano). Both soloists have been performing for Ashby Village since 2021. Jiwon performed in some Zoom concerts, never in-person at Ashby Village, so this will be very meaningful and memorable for everyone.

We hope you will join us for this wonderful program and stay afterwards for a reception in honor of the Celeste Solo Ensemble.

Regretfully, this will be the last concert of the Celeste Soloists for Ashby Village.
