The nonprofit Mark Zinger Memorial Foundation (Zinger Foundation) sponsored the Mark Zinger Memorial Concert at the Gannon Concert Hall in DePaul School of Music’s brand-new, world-class Holtschneider Performance Center.
The Zinger Foundation is honored to collaborate with DePaul University for the Foundation’s inaugural concert celebrating the life and legacy of Prof. Mark Zinger, who was a beloved member of the DePaul School of Music faculty for over 25 years, serving as violin professor and head of strings. (Prof. Zinger was Sara Su's primary violin teacher from childhood until his death at the age of 93 in February 2018.)
This concert will be a wonderful opportunity to hear and meet some of Prof. Zinger’s most distinguished students, who perform as soloists and members of leading orchestras throughout the United States, including longtime Grant Park Orchestra concertmaster Jeremy Black and internationally renowned violist/violinist Elias Goldstein. Performers will also include Stephen Balderston, DePaul cello professor and former assistant principal cello of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
The two-hour concert will include solo and chamber performances of works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Kroll, Sibelius, Kreisler, Dinicu, and Paganini, among others, as well as brief remarks by several of the performers concerning the impact Prof. Zinger had on their lives and careers. The program will conclude with a 25-member violin choir (composed of Prof. Zinger’s former students from throughout the US) performing works by Vivaldi, Brahms, Fibich, and Shostakovich.
Immediately following the concert will be a complimentary reception, hosted by the Zinger Foundation, that will offer audience members the opportunity to interact with these acclaimed performers.
Admission is free, though donations to the Mark Zinger Memorial Foundation, established by his family and students to sustain his remarkable legacy, will be gratefully accepted.
