This just in from the rising crossover violinist, Charles Yang:

‘I am so so so thankful to be alive at this moment. My rental car was hit by a truck today while I was on my way to LA from San Francisco. I am so thankful for the people who stopped and helped, the paramedics the doctors etc. About to be discharged with no broken bones and I’m gonna play the best show of my life this Saturday. Thank you to whoever or whatever is keeping me alive and of course to you all, my family. I won’t letcha down .’

    We heard Juilliard graduate and Glenn Dichterow student Yang a few times during special subscriber events and during their chamberfest series. He’s great at whatever genre he does. We’re glad he’s alright!
