About This Project

Your support of ECA's Alpin Hong Residency will give students a unique opportunity to study with an award-winning musician and further strengthen our efforts to provide high-quality, affordable arts education programming to the community. 

Project Details:
Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) needs your help to support a 3-day educational residency with acclaimed pianist Alpin Hong. Mr. Hong wowed young musicians when he was last at ECA in 2012, and no doubt will add to his enthusiastic fan base as he once again engages local students.

From March 24-26, Alpin Hong will work with approximately 60 middle and high school students from across the Edmonds School District in an “All-Star Orchestra.” These students will be mentored by the artist in rehearsals and will form the orchestra he performs with in his public performance at ECA on March 26th.

Mr. Hong’s residency will also include a special in-school performance at Mountlake Terrace High School on March 24th, as well as a free dress rehearsal at ECA on the 26th for local students. The Alpin Hong Residency is provided by ECA to schools and participating students free-of-charge.

Prior to Alpin Hong’s performance on the 26th, ECA will host a dinner for students, their families and orchestra teachers from participating schools. This will be a great opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our student musicians, and to give families and educators a chance to socialize before the concert. Tickets to the Student & Family Dinner are priced below-cost ($5 per person, compared to a $10 per person catering fee) to ensure we include as many students and families as possible. Families and educators will also receive significantly discounted tickets to the performance.
