Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim to perform with YOBC

World-renowned violinist David Kim will be the featured guest artist at the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County’s (YOBC) spring concert, 4:00pm Sunday, April 6th at Maple Point Middle School, 2250 Langhorne-Yardley Road, Langhorne. Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra since 1999, Mr. Kim’s appearance with the youth orchestra is thanks in large part to an encounter last year with YOBC cellist Eric Cyphers.

Eric attended a spring 2013 solo performance by Mr. Kim at the Hilltown Baptist Church in Chalfont. After the performance, waiting in line for an autograph, Eric was struck by how friendly he seemed, and asked Mr. Kim if he would consider performing with YOBC.
