Aug. 16, 2013
Bongshin Ko’s solo CD has received long-run “steady seller” recognition from SONY Classical.
Cellist Bongshin Ko, professor of music, and CSUF students — cellist Kevin Mills, flutist Vincenzo Lai, pianist Nikolas del Palacio, violinist Lambert Hsieh and violist Miguel Cunanan — performed invitational concerts in Germany and France in July.
Mills, a senior who lives in Mission Viejo, won a $2,000 prize at the Mu Phi Epsilon Instrumental Competition in April, first-place honors at the American String Teachers Association’s Greater LA Finals in May and second-place honors at the Schlern International Music Festival held in July in South Tyrol, Italy.
And, Ko’s solo CD, released by SONY Classical in 2010, recently received long-run “steady seller” recognition from the label.
