Violinist Ji Soo Choi joins Gold Coast Chamber Players Saturday. A concert featuring violinist Ji Soo Choi, who will join the Gold Coast Chamber Players for her west coast debut, will take place at 7:30 p.m. March 14 at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center Community Hall, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd. In 2013, as an 18-year old violinist living in Toronto, Choi sought to enter the prestigious all-Canadian Music Competition and play Tchaikovsky’s challenging Violin Concerto in D Major. The competition rules, however, disallowed players in the teen division from performing pieces that long. Ji Soo thus requested and was granted a special exemption to play in the adult competition — and won the grand prize for all competitors there.
