Meadows alumna fills in for retired Dallas Symphony Orchestra concertmaster

Yuan-Qing Yu steps in as guest artist for recently retired DSO concertmaster, Emanuel Borok

The following is an excerpt of a column by Olin Chism is from Art&Seek.net posted on September 10, 2010. Read the complete column.

Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony, which was the other work of the evening, went ahead as planned. If Van Zweden didn’t quite make it seem fresh once more, he gave it a dramatic performance (including a hair-raising finale) and the orchestra once more was in top form.

There are some personnel changes this season. Most notably, concertmaster Emanuel Borok has retired and his place will be filled by a series of guests (there will be auditions for the position in November). Taking this key position this week (and several times later in the season) is Yuan-Qing Yu, assistant concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, incidentally.

Other prominent members of the Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and the Indiana University faculty will be filling in later.
