Spontaneous Combustion sings year's finale in Spaulding

|

It's 11:35 p.m. on a performance night and Spontaneous Combustion is on the serenading prowl. They've already made one hit, and they're looking for more helpless prey. The group's four current members, Lew Cirne '93, Bill Lapcevic '93, Norm Roye '93 and Dave Kaiser '93 bound down the steps of the Channing Cox apartment complex, filling the stairwell with the bops, bums and ba-das so typical of their 1950's doo-wop style of music.

Harvard violinist gives concert

|

Solo violinist Scott Yoo, with flagellating horse hair disengaged by his ferocious bowing, provided an exciting and extremely entertaining performance in Spaulding Auditorium last night. A physics major at Harvard, Yoo won the Young Concert Artists International competition at 17 and has appeared as a soloist with orchestras including Boston Symphony, Modesto and Pasadena Symphonies in California, the Reno Chamber Orchestra and the Virginia Symphony. Yoo has soloed abroad with the Korean Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra in Seoul, the Maracaibo Orchestra and the Orquesta Sinfonica in Venezuela as well as in the Dominican Republic. Yoo, accompanied by Max Levinson on piano, began the program with classic repertoire of Bach and Beethoven Sonati, continued with Saint-Saens and Bazzini in the second half and topped off the performance with an encore transcription of Scott Joplin. Levinson, a junior at Harvard and himself an accomplished solo pianist, performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the age of thirteen and has since performed as soloist, recitalist and chamber musician in New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston. Yoo and Levinson worked very well together, combining the attributes of the piano and violin in an interplay of melody and harmony, which produced an impressive and appealing musical presentation. Yoo and Levinson rendered a very sensitive performance of the Beethoven Sonata No.
