About the event

Kerson Leong, violin

Lisa Rumpel, piano

Kerson Leong has been described as “not just one of Canada’s greatest violinists but one of the greatest violinists, period” (Toronto Star). Since his First Prize win at the International Yehudi Menuhin Violin Competition in 2010, he has mesmerized audiences with “a mixture of spontaneity and mastery, elegance, fantasy, intensity that makes his sound recognizable from the first notes.” (Le Monde). Leong has performed in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, Wigmore Hall, the Auditorium du Louvre and the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing.

An active member of Manitoba’s arts scene. Her vibrant and varied freelance career has included performances with Flipside Opera & Art Song Collective, The Little Opera Company, Manitoba Underground Opera, Manitoba Opera, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers (Looking Glass, 2023), and community concert organizations such as Agassiz Chamber Music Festival and Living Room Live, among others.
