Local Musical Wunderkind Sylvan Zhang Accompanied Moscow Ballet Principal Ballerina at Oklahoma City’s Chevrolet Center in 2018
Violinist Sylvan Zhang accompanied a prima ballerina in Saint-Saëns’ iconic “Dying Swan,” before a performance of the Great Russian Nutcracker on the 2018 Dove of Peace Tour at Oklahoma City’s Hudiburg Chevrolet Center. The performance was part of Moscow Ballet’s community engagement program “Musical Wunderkind.”
Sylvan Zhang is a 15-year-old violinist who has been perfecting the violin since age five. At just nine-years-old he had already played Carnegie Hall three times. Moscow Ballet “Musical Wunderkind,” who perform in many cities on the 2018 tour, are Concerto Competition winners and the next generation of professional musicians. Through this program they have the rare opportunity of accompanying a world-class Principal Ballerina live before their hometown audience.
