Violinist Timothy Chooi will take the stage for the Heartland Concert Association concert at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11 at the Park Rapids Area High School auditorium.

Admission is by season membership or tickets can be purchased at the door.

A Canadian, Chooi has been described by Montreal Lapresse as "the miracle.” Chooi is currently pursuing his Masters of Music at the Juilliard School.

A first prize winner of the 2018 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition in Hannover, Germany, he most recently won first prize of the Schadt Violin Competition in the U.S. He had already made a name for himself as recipient of numerous prizes.

Chooi has performed worldwide with renowned orchestras, among them the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Malaysian Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the NDR Philharmonie.

Along with winning top international prizes, he has contributed his violin performances in global peace events, such as the Asian Heritage Day Gala in collaboration with the Canada government.

With his older brother, Nikki, also a violinist, he has founded the ensemble “The Chooi Brothers,” which has been performing for over five years with a special dedication of bringing performances across remote regions of the world where classical music is still rare. Most recently, they have completed a project of performing 10 concerts in isolated communities across the Arctic.
