Timothy Chooi, violin
In recital with Jeanie Chung, piano
"…an emerging young virtuoso of exceptional promise—praised for his maturity, presence and technical prowess."
One of Canada’s most promising and exciting young artists, violinist Timothy Chooi, returns to Music in the Morning. He was the Grand Prize winner of the 2010 Montréal Standard Life Competition (2010), and he debuted with the Montreal Symphony under the baton of Maestro Jean-François Rivest at the age of sixteen, in a performance that was described by La Presse as “a miracle.” Chooi was also recently awarded top prizes at the 2015 Michael Hill International Violin Competition in New Zealand, and the Menuhin International Violin Competition.
Born and raised in Victoria, Chooi has performed with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Philharmonia to name a few. He is joined by collaborator, acclaimed Toronto pianist Jeanie Chung.
Chooi and Chung will perform works by Vitali, Saint-Saëns and Ysaÿe.
