This Sunday, guest pianist Yukiko Sekino will join baritone David Meharry in sharing their musical gifts during worship. David will sing Moses Hogan’s lovely arrangement of “Deep River” and Haydn’s passionate “Rolling in Foaming Billows” (from The Creation). For the centering music, offertory and postlude, Yukiko will pay Ludvig van Beethoven’s fiery “Prestissimo” (from Sonata in F minor, Op. 2 No. 1) and Robert Schumann’s lyrical “Posthumous Variation IV” (from Symphonic Etudes, Op. 13) and his serene “Des Abends” (from Fantasiestücke, Op. 12). Praised for her “thrilling, inspirational performance” (Florida Sun-Sentinel) and “elegance of line, leaping energy” (San Jose Mercury News), Yukiko Sekino’s career encompasses a wide range of interests. She made her debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at age 16, and has since performed with the New World Symphony and Harvard-Radcliff Orchestra, among others. Dr. Sekino graduated from Harvard University and the Julliard School, and holds a doctoral degree from SUNY Stony Brook. She has given master classes in the US and China.
