It is getting to be a rare event when the atrium of the Clinical Research Center does not host a performance of live music. Recently, horn players from the National Symphony Orchestra were joined by members of the NIH Community Orchestra horn section for a holiday sing-along. On Jan. 18, pianist Hui-Chuan Chen and violinist Kenneth Naito performed Mozart’s violin concerto No. 5, Brahms’ violin concerto D major, 2nd and 3rd movement and Waxman’s Carmen Fantasie. Chen has a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins Peabody Institute and is on the faculty at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Naito is a student at the Juilliard School Pre-College.
