The collaboration between St. Cecilia Music Center here in Grand Rapids and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has been so successful, that it shows no signs of slowing down, and a new season is about to begin.

Co-artistic director and pianist, Wu Han, will perform with colleagues Kristin Lee, Yura Lee and Arnaud Sussman, violin; Richard O’Neill, viola and Nicholas Canellakis, cello, on Thursday evening, March 16, with a program entitled “French Virtuosity.”
