“The talent these young people display on their instruments is only matched by the artistry and passion with which they perform,” the Richmond Orchestra’s website states.

Lee is a multi-talented musician who plays violin, cello, piano, viola, harp and flute. At the Rising Stars concert, she will be recreating her 2018 Richmond Music Festival award winning performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor op.64, 1st movement.

Tromans began piano lessons at age three and was featured on CBC’s The Early Edition when he was seven. Tromans will perform the first movement of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.3 in C Major, Op.26.

Kwok began learning the cello when he was nine and has been section leader in Vancouver’s Magee Secondary School Orchestra since 2016. Kwok will perform Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33, 1st movement and Coda.

The Rising Stars concert is set for Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m. at Fraserview MB Church, 11295 Mellis Dr., Richmond.
