Gordon Concerto Competition Winner to
Perform at Hopkins

Acclaimed violinist Igor Yuzefovich, winner of the 2003-2004 Yale Gordon Concerto Competition at the Peabody Institute, will perform compositions by Franck and Prokofiev at noon on Wednesday, April 7, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Yuzefovich has performed at numerous concert venues, from Carnegie Hall to the Cairo Opera House in Egypt. He has also performed in Jordan as part of the Beethoven Violin Concert at King Hussein's birthday celebration.

Born in 1979 in Moscow, Russia, he began to study violin at 5 and enrolled at the Moscow State Gnessin Music School for the Gifted and Talented. His family moved to the United States in 1991, and he began studies at the Catholic University in Washington, D.C. He then went to the Peabody Preparatory program in Baltimore and earned both a bachelor's degree in music and a graduate performance diploma from the Peabody Conservatory. In addition to winning the Gordon Concerto Competition, Yuzefovich took first prize in the Arlington Symphony Competition, the Omega Psi Phi International Talent Hunt, the Fairfax Symphony Competition, the Wolf Trap Foundation Scholarship Competition, and the Marbury Violin Competition at the Peabody Conservatory. A digital image of Yuzefovich is available upon request to amycowles@jhu.edu.

This performance is cosponsored by the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust and is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 38th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 443-287-9900.
