The Mendelssohn Violin Concerto is considered one of the most beautiful works ever written for violin and the orchestra. Our soloist, Ming-Feng Hsin, began his violin studies at the age of six in his native Tainan, Taiwan. At age twelve, he was awarded the first prize in the Cathay Pacific Airlines Violin Competition. As part of the prize, he was invited to attend the Hong Kong Music Festival, where Yehudi Menuhin heard him and brought him to England to study at his school. Mr. Hsin’s solo career began when he won the Glasgow International Violin Competition at the age of fifteen. He recently retired after 24 years of service as first violinist in the Met Opera Orchestra.

CARY HOFFMAN finally achieved his dream with his autobiographical one-man hit musical, My Sinatra, about his Sinatra obsession, which ran Off-Broadway for two years. Hoffman has performed the music of Frank Sinatra for the past fifteen years in over 80 performing arts centers and 20 major symphonies around the world, including a performance for the President of Singapore and the President of Mexico. He is acknowledged as America’s premier Sinatra interpreter (“Dead On…” – The New York Times, “Mesmerizing!” – Los Angeles Times, “The Best Sinatra Singer ever!” – Jackie Mason). His compelling blend of vocal performance, along with his true stories from a lonely teen singing along to Sinatra in his bedroom, to performing with some of the best symphonies, make it unlike any other Sinatra tribute show. This led to a National PBS television special which has aired in over 80 cities around the country and was viewed by more than a million people.
