Posted on 8 Apr 2015 by Neall Kriete

Stefan Jackiw took the world by storm when he made his sensational debut at the age of 14 at the Royal Festival Hall in London performing Mendelssohn’s famous E minor Violin Concerto. In 2011, he did it again when he performed the same piece to a worldwide audience of 30 million under Michael Tilson Thomas in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra concert at the Sydney Opera House.

Watch Jackiw perform the piece he has made his own alongside the YouTube Symphony Orchestra.
