Event Description:
Summit Avenue Music Series (SAMS) artists, Soh-Hyun Park Altino (violinist) and Leonardo Altino (cellist), will speak on music education both in their home countries of Korea and Brazil and in America.  The Altinos will perform "Tangos et cetera" in the season-opening SAMS concert.

Soh-Hyun Park Altino, Korean-born violinist, is highly regarded as a gifted teacher and a versatile performer of solo and chamber music. Her concert engagements have taken her to Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Germany, Korea and throughout the United States, as well as to festivals including the Duxbury Music Festival, Festival de Inverno Campos do Jordão and Festival Virtuosi in Brazil, and the Academy y Festival Nuevo Mundo in Venezuela. She has collaborated with renowned artists such as Monique Duphil, Oleh Krysa, Laurie Smukler, Suren Bagratuni, Steven Mackey and Jasper de Waal, among others.

Leonardo Altino, Brazilian cellist, began his musical studies at the age of six, giving his debut with an orchestra performing the Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1 at age eleven. Altino’s career breakthrough in Brazil came when he became the youngest winner of the Jovens Concertistas Brasileiros, a prestigious competition in Rio de Janeiro, which led to performances with every major orchestra in the country. Praised in The Strad for “exceptional musical intelligence and an exceptionally cultivated sound,” Altino was the First Prize winner at the International Cello Competition in Viña del Mar, and has since appeared as soloist and in recitals throughout Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Venezuela; Italy, Denmark and Greece; Korea and Taiwan and in the United States.
