SCOTTSDALE – They’re young. They’re talented. They’re dedicated musicians honing their performance skills as they work their way towards becoming tomorrow’s stars. And, you get to hear them for free on November 16, at the Arizona Musicfest "Young Performers Recital"!

The concert begins at 2 p.m. in North Scottsdale at Westminster Village. Outstanding award-winning young artists – David Kwak, violin; Eric Lin, piano; Lily Kwak, piano; and Tiffany Chang, violin – will perform a program that’s a musical candy dish filled to the brim with delightful short classical works.
