The 21st Anniversary Mukilteo Christmas Concert is being held at Trinity Lutheran Church again this year, in order to accommodate the growing audience that this popular holiday concert (which used to be in Mukilteo) enjoys.
Musical luminaries for the evening include internationally renowned violinist Kwan Bin Park and Seattle Opera performers, Ksenia Popova and Rebecca Sacks.
Mr. Park has been the artistic director of the Mukilteo Christmas Concert since its inception in 1994. He holds degrees from Juilliard School of Music. Parks won the silver medal at the Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Verona, Italy and has performed in numerous venues around the world including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Merkin Hall in New York, Benaroya and Nordstrom Recital Halls in Seattle, and Busan and Seoul National Arts Centers in South Korea.
Mezzo soprano Rebecca Sacks performs opera and concert repertoire in the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Music with departmental honors in Vocal Performance from Stanford University in 2010 and completed post-baccalaureate work at the University of Oregon in 2013. Rebecca is a member of the Portland Opera Chorus.
Ksenia Popova, soprano, is a graduate of Mukilteo’s Kamiak High School, has been praised as “a young soprano to watch” (The News Tribune) for her portrayal of Josephine in Tacoma Opera’s H.M.S Pinafore. Ms.Popova is a frequent soloist for Seattle Opera Guild’s Preview Groups.
Joining the evening’s program will be Mr. Park’s 27-member church choir and pianist Sun Chang, who is on leave from her studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In her recent past she has been chosen as one of Seattle Chamber Music Society’s “Emerging Artists.”
