Please join us at National City Christian Church this Friday, May 26, at 12:15 p.m., for our free weekly Music at Midday concert. This week we are delighted to be welcoming performers from Chicago—violinist Sara Su Jones and pianist Tatyana Stepanova. They will be performing:
- Adagio in C Major, BWV 564 – Johann Sebastian Bach
- Sonata for Violin and Piano – Marguerite Canal
- Scherzo in C minor, WoO 2 – Johannes Brahms
Hailed as a “violinist of enviable gifts” by a Chicago Sun-Times critic, Sara Su Jones engages audiences with her eclectic, creative programming. She has given recitals in London, Lisbon, and Reykjavík, as well as in her native Chicago, and has been a featured soloist on WFMT, WBEZ, and BBC Radio. Sara Su was the recipient of the 2022 American Prize winner (instrumental soloist),
Tatyana Stepanova is a noted performer and teacher, praised as a “fine” and “persuasive” pianist by the Chicago Tribune. A Kyiv native and graduate of the Tchaikovsky (Kyiv) and Rimsky-Korsakov (St. Petersburg) State Conservatories, she has performed with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s orchestra. Tatyana teaches at Midwest Young Artists and has also served as a faculty accompanist at Northwestern University.
For those who are not able to join us in person, we will be recording the concert and will post it on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
