After Four Years, Violinist Joe Lin Says Goodbye in PBHA Benefit Concert

On Monday night, Joseph I. Lin '00, a world-renowned violinist, gave his final concert at Harvard.

The event at Sanders Theatre, entitled "Joseph Lin and Friends," was a benefit for the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) Centennial Campaign.

Joining Lin were Benjamin Loeb '89, a pianist, Mary Rosen, a cellist in the Mendelsohn string quartet who is in residence at Harvard, and violinist Nokuthula E. Ngwenyama, a student at the Divinity School.


The benefit began with Bach's "Chaconne," a solo violin piece.

Lin's next piece, Beethoven's

"Kreutzer Sonata," featured Loeb's accompaniment.

The second part of the program featured all four participants, as Ngwenyama and Rosen joined Lin and Loeb for a performance of Brahms' Piano Quartet No. 3.

"These pieces worked for the people involved," he said.
