SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of guest conductor Karen Pinoci, will begin the 2013-2014 season with a concert featuring music by Dvorak and Bruch, December 8 at 3 p.m.

The Summit Symphony Orchestra  (SSO) will perform Slavonic Dance No. 8 in G minor by Dvorak, Violin Concerto No. 1 by Bruch and Symphony No. 8 in G major also by Dvorak.  The featured soloist for the Bruch will be violinist Byung-Kook Kwak, who returns to the orchestra in his first performance with the SSO since Fall of 2007.
Internationally acclaimed as one of the finest violinists of the generation, Byung-Kook Kwak enjoys a versatile career as a soloist, chamber musician, and educator.  From coast to coast, critics have hailed him as a premier violinist whose musical gifts and technical wizardry are powerful and sensitive.  Kwak has received critical acclaim in this country for performances with orchestras such as Atlanta Symphony, American Symphony, Montreal Symphony, New Philharmonic of New Jersey, Westchester Symphony, Little Orchestra Society and Los Angeles Chamber Symphony.
 
In addition to his performances, Kwak maintains a teaching career, as he is currently a faculty member at Manhattan School of Music, Mannes College of Music, and Westchester Conservatory of Music, and is chairman of strings at Jewish Academy of Fine Arts.

Born in Seoul, Korea, Kwak was hailed as a child prodigy, and made his orchestral debut at the age of seven with Seoul Philharmonic.  He was awarded first prizes in prestigious competitions in Seoul, including Dong-A National competition.  Continuing his studies in the U.S., he became one of the youngest violinists ever to be accepted to study with Jascha Heifetz at age twelve.  Earning his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from Juilliard School, he studied with Dorothy DeLay and Ivan Galamian.

The concert, which will be held at Summit High School, is sponsored, in part, by the Summit Department of Community Programs.  Admission is free.
