Liwei Qin to Perform at Evergreen Carriage House

The 2001-2002 Evergreen Carriage House Concert Series will open on Friday, October 5th at 8 p.m. with cellist Liwei Qin. Born in Shanghai in 1976, Qin moved to Australia in 1989 where he accepted a scholarship to study at the Royal Northern College of Music in 1995. Described by Paul Cutts in the The Strad magazine as "the most gifted young cellist I have heard," Liwei Qin has won several major awards including first prize in the 2001 Naumberg International Cello Competition and the Silver Medal in the 11th Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow. He has performed extensively throughout Asia, Australia and Europe and was invited to perform as guest artist for the World Cello Congress III in the U.S. during the 2000/01 season. Qin has toured as a soloist with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in Argentina and the U.S. and the Polish Chamber Philharmonic in Poland and Germany, and is currently 'Scholar in Residence' at the Royal Northern College of Music. His program at Evergreen will include pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Vasks, and Shostakovich.

The Evergreen Carriage House Concert Series was begun by the Evergreen House Foundation in 1954 to honor the memory of Alice Warder Garrett who lived at Evergreen House from 1920 to 1952. Mrs. Garrett was a patron of the arts who sponsored the Musical Art Quartet in residence at Evergreen each spring and fall from 1928 to 1942.

The Evergreen Carriage House is located at 4545 North Charles Street in Baltimore. Admission is $15 per person and includes a reception after the performance to meet the artist. Evergreen Fellows, Contributors, and Patrons admitted free with one guest. To make reservations or for more information call 410-516-0341 or visit Evergreen on the web at www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
