Eric Tsai began his violin studies at the age of four under the tutelage of Jeffrey Flaniken. Since the age of seven, Eric has maintained a steady schedule of performances. He has performed as soloist with the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra, the Gadsden Symphony Orchestra, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, and the Schwob School of Music Philharmonic. Now 17, he also has an upcoming solo appearance with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. Eric is currently continuing his studies with Sergiu Schwartz at Columbus State University’s Schwob School of Music, and is a recipient of the Woodruff Award, a full tuition/room/board scholarship for four years.
In February 2013, Eric was awarded the first prize in the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra Youth Concerto Competition and played a Providence Presents concert when he returned to perform with the Hilton Head Symphony in 2014. Eric will be accompanied by his father, Jason Tsai, who is a noted concert pianist. Please join us as they will praise God with his heart and music. There is no charge for Providence Presents concerts; however a free-will offering will be gratefully accepted.
