Since first appearing at the Olympic Music Festival in 2013, violinist Ray Chen has taken the world by storm as one of the most sought-after soloists. He has appeared in virtually every major music venue with top-tier orchestras and renowned conductors. He joins pianist and OMF Artistic Director Julio Elizalde for a recital that ranges from the heroic lyricism of Grieg's rarely heard Violin Sonata No. 2 to Bach's iconic Chaconne in D minor for solo violin. This fall, the duo will embark on a tour of North America, with concerts at major halls such as Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles, and Koerner Hall in Toronto. Don't miss their first stop here at the OMF for the conclusion of our 2019 summer season!

Join the artists for a post-concert question & answer session immediately following the performance.
