Two weeks ago, our music director and instructor Stan Antonevich performed chamber music at a festival of new music by women composers in Hartford CT. Stan got a wonderful surprise running into his former student Subaiou Zhang, who was performing in the same festival. Subaiou is now a doctorate student of music at Boston University, we wish her the best of luck in her studies!
Stan’s student Henry Kim of Lexington has been selected to be part of a string octet organized by virtuoso violinist Emil Altschuler, and comprised of professionals and advanced students. They will be performing the Mendelssohn String Octet in Hanover NH in April. Congratulations, Henry — this is an amazing peformance opportunity!

Here is an article about Stan’s former student Subaiou Zhang, who is praised as soloist with the Brookline Symphony Orchestra, playing the Sibelius Violin Concerto. This Concerto is one of the pieces that Stan worked on with Subaiou, and he is very happy that their work has paid off. Subaiou is now a doctorate student in Music at BU, where she was accepted with high merit scholarship, to study with Stan’s former teacher Prof. Mazurkevich.
