LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 5, 2004) -- Four faculty members from the University of Kentucky School of Music will be performing a great work a great distance from home Jan. 9, 2004.

Conductor Julian Shew, violinist Daniel Mason, pianist Irina Voro, and cellist Benjamin Karp will be playing the “Triple Concerto” of Beethoven with the Tianjin Philharmonic in Tianjin, China.

Shew, a native of China, is already in Asia. Voro and Karp will travel together directly to Beijing, where they will meet Mason, who will have spent four days teaching in Seoul, South Korea.

While it is unusual for the four to travel so far to perform together, each individual regularly performs and teaches internationally.

For those who cannot travel to China to hear the performance, the concert will be performed by the UK Symphony Orchestra April 2, 2004, in the Concert Hall of the UK Singletary Center for the Arts. This concert will be a benefit for the scholarship fund of the School of Music.
