On the Cover: Kuan Cheng Lu

Posted December 03, 2015

Meet violinist Kuan Cheng Lu, the December On the Cover musician!

In the video above, Kuan shares the moving story of how his mother foresaw his future with the Philharmonic. On December 15, he will take over our Instagram. Follow us to get a sneak peek at what life is like in the string section of the Philharmonic.

Kuan will be the first On the Cover musician to participate in a live Twitter Q&A. Follow us on Twitter, and we’ll let you know when Kuan will answer all your questions about violin technique, performing with the Philharmonic, or even about his favorite places to eat in New York.

Have you ever wanted to check out the Philharmonic’s Archives? If so, we have a holiday present for you! Kuan will take us on a video tour with Philharmonic Archivist Barbara Haws later in the month. After spending days doing research in the Archives for his doctorate, Kuan is an authority. (If you can’t wait, visit the Leon Levy Digital Archives to hold you over.)
