Second Sunday Series -Rising Stars- Sophia Cho, Olivia Cho & Hamilton Lau
The Roedde House Museum Second Sunday Concert Series presents its second annual "Rising Stars" concert showcasing young local talent.  String playing sisters Sophia and Olivia Cho (violin and cello) are joined by pianist Hamilton Lau in this heat-of-summer chamber music sizzler.  These three young and accomplished musicians (15, 13 and 11, respectively) are already burning brightly, winning competitions and accolades and performing as soloists and chamber musicians in such venues as the Orpheum and the Shadbolt Centre.  If this trio of young performers is any indicator, the next generation of music in Vancouver is in good hands.

Sophia Cho
Before beginning violin studies with Lawrie Hill at the age of eight, Sophia was taught by
her father from the age of four. Now 15 years old, Sophia plays regularly in her church
orchestra, is part of the Chamber Music Institute of the Vancouver Academy of Music
(VAM) under the coaching of Andrew Dawes, and is a member of the VAM Symphony
Orchestra. Sophia is also a member of Healing Harmonies at her school (a club
dedicated to performing music in seniors homes.) She has participated in
masterclasses with such artists as violinist Augustin Hadelich. Sophia has taken part in
various competitions and has won awards from the Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festival
and Friends of Chamber Music Competition. Sophia also studies piano with Winfried

Olivia Cho
Music has played a large part in Olivia's life since she began studying the cello at the
age of five under the tutelage of Joseph Elworthy. Now 13 years of age, Olivia's
accomplishments include placing first in the 2013 Canadian Music Competition and
winning the grand prize of VAM's Edith Lando Gifted Youth Competition, as well as
receiving many distinctions in the Kiwanis Music Festival and Friends of Chamber Music
Competition. The youngest ever grand prize winner of VAM's Kay Meek Competition,
Olivia performed on the Orpheum stage as a soloist in early 2014 with the VAM
Symphony Orchestra. She has participated in masterclasses with such musicians as
Dale Barltrop, Ariel Barnes, Desmond Hoebig, Paul Marleyn, Na Mula, and Raphael
Wallfisch and was part of the CBC recording session of the Music in the Morning series
featuring Shauna Rolston. Olivia is also a member of the Healing Harmonies club, her
church orchestra, the VAM Chamber Music Institute, and VAM Symphony Orchestra.

Hamilton Lau
11 year old Hamilton Lau began piano studies at that age of four and is currently playing
at RCM Grade 10 level. He has received First Class Honours with Distinction- the
highest award possible- on all his previous RCM exams. Hamilton has won many
awards and scholarships from such festivals as the Vancouver Kiwanis Festival, Fraser
Valley International Music Festival, Festival on the Lake, CDMF Performing Arts
Festival, and the BCCM Music Festival. This past spring, Hamilton was selected to
perform a Haydn concerto with the Stradivari Ensemble under the direction of Robert
Rozek as part of the BCCM Gala Concert. He has also played in masterclasses with
Dr. Corey Hamm and Dr. Lucas Wong as well as participating in a chamber music
course at the Vancouver Academy with Dr. Andrew Dawes. Hamilton's trio was selected
to perform in a special community outreach benefit concert held at the Windermere
Care Centre in Vancouver. He plays trumpet in his school band and badminton in his
spare time. Hamilton is currently a student of Rita Attrot at the BC Conservatory of
Music in Burnaby.
