Violinist Jasmine Lin, a graduate of Homewood-Flossmoor High School, will return to the area for a performance with the Trio Voce ensemble at 7:30 p.m. April 21, in the Prairie State College Auditorium, 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights.
Trio Voce is composed of Lin, cellist Marina Hoover, and pianist Patricia Tao. Hailed by Fanfare magazine for its “deeply committed and passionate” performances, the ensemble has garnered acclaim for its concerts in New York, Chicago, the north Midwest, California, Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, according to a release about the performance.
Lin was 12 when she was named the 1985 winner of the senior division of the WTTW/Illinois Bell Illinois Young Performers Competition, the release said. Lin soloed as a teenage prodigy with the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra. She has appeared with many orchestras including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of Brazil, and in recitals in Chicago, New York, Nova Scotia, Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo, the release said.
The New York Times describes her as having “electrifying assertiveness” and “virtuosic abandon,” according to the release. She is on the faculty at Roosevelt University and is a member of the Chicago Chamber Musicians.
The performance will benefit the Friends of the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra and the Prairie State College Foundation, according to the release. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $5 for students and will be available at the door.
