NEW YORK, February 22, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The Classical Note Philharmonic performed romantic serenades of Tchaikovsky, Dvorak and an original composition by their music director and conductor David Jeong at Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center on Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018.
“The debut concert was a success in showing our first audience the strong passion we hold together as musicians in bringing classical music back to life. Only passion-filled performances will bring modern audiences closer to classical music and we will continue this daring journey with our next performance in May 2018 at Bergen Performing Arts Center in New Jersey,” said Jeong.
In his role as music director, Jeong has emphasized that, in order to reach the goal of keeping classical music alive, it is vital that classical musicians also be kept “alive” – which means creating opportunities to support high-caliber musicians. The musicians who came together under Jeong’s leadership to create the Classical Note Philharmonic are united by the idea that classical music must continue for future generations.
One way Jeong hopes to achieve this is through showcasing various genres of classical music and the development of attractive concert programs to accommodate families with children. In addition to reviving traditional compositions, Jeong plans to include feature film and symphonic music he composed with experience as a former Sony Music and Universal Music artist.
“I created the Classical Note Philharmonic in 2018 to give high-quality musicians the opportunity for vibrant performances, as well as to create more jobs to keep their craft alive and continue pursuing their talents and lifelong calling in music,” he said. “This has become my life’s mission: to create opportunities for musicians and stage classical music for the modern audience.”
In 2014, Jeong was acclaimed by Maestro Lorin Maazel during his final Castleton Music Festival as a conductor with "surprising talent." Previously, Jeong studied at the Gnessin Moscow Special School of Music and Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Russia as a composer and pianist, and he earned both his B.M. (Piano) and M.M. (Conducting) degrees at the New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. His debut piano albums, published by Sony Music and Universal Music of Korea, poignantly showcase the passion and sincerity of this remarkable triple-threat conductor, composer and pianist. Recently, Jeong released a solo piano album of original compositions, Run Away With Me, through Classical Note Inc., which is available on iTunes.
