In Hunterdon, Zeh was a long-time violin student of Nancy Roth and a graduate of North Hunterdon High School. She went on to earn degrees in music and English from Oberlin College and studied at Mannes College in New York, winning its concerto competition.

A member of American Ballet Theatre Orchestra and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, she also performs regularly at Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Opera House and has appeared as a soloist with many New York regional orchestras.

Zeh is also active as a commercial artist, recording jingles, leading as concertmaster of the Tony Awards broadcast, backing up pop artists, and also playing in Broadway pit orchestras. She last appeared in Hunterdon in 2012, when she performed the Korngold Violin Concerto with the Hunterdon Symphony.

Jihwan Kim is a New York City-based composer and pianist. He is currently the pianist for Sousatzka, a Maltby/Shire musical premiering in Toronto. He has been pianist at An American in Paris on Broadway, A Chorus Line First National Tour, and played in the Broadway orchestra pits of Mary Poppins and Evita. He has collaborated on musicals, including Cupid and Psyche, which was nominated for a Drama Desk Award, and has several film scores to his credit.

Referred to as Saturday Strings, the Music for Youth Program offers instruction for string instruments at beginning and intermediate levels, available to both youth and adults. It also includes participation in orchestras at intermediate and advanced levels, chamber ensembles, and fiddling coaching. An effort is made to keep tuition low while offering many instructional options, and the organization looks for ways to supplement tuition income in order to cover the cost of the program.

Tickets are $25; $10 for students. Advance sales are available through the group’s website, or the following local merchants (cash or check only): Califon Book Shop, Clinton Book Shop, Teaberry’s Tea Room in Flemington, or Minette’s Candies or The Book Garden in Frenchtown.

Tickets will also be available at the door on the afternoon of the concert. For more information or to request an accommodation for a disability, visit hunterdonmusicalarts.org or call 908-995-7977. Hunterdon Musical Arts may also be found on Facebook.

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer. The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.

Marc and Brook ignored my follow-up report in ...
