Eastman students to perform at presidential inauguration event

Rochester Business Journal

Four students from the Eastman School of Music will get a chance to play for a big audience—the president of the United States.

Violinists Che Ho Lam and Markiyan Melnychenko, violist Kelsey Farr and cellist Hyeok Kwon were selected to represent Eastman at the Presidential Inaugural Luncheon on Jan. 21. They were invited by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., after being selected to represent the school through an audition process.

The school has been well-represented at past inaugural events. Eastman school alum Renee Fleming performed at the previous inauguration, Dean Douglas Lowry said.

“We are honored to send a group of talented Eastman School of Music students to perform at this historic event,” Lowry said in a statement. “This appearance underscores Eastman’s reputation as a music school of the highest caliber, whose alumni appear in renowned venues around the world.”

The four students are to perform as the Eastman String Quartet for an audience that includes President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, former presidents, senators, representatives and cabinet officials.
