Yuriy Bekker arrived in Charleston in 2007 and quickly fell in love with it. Since then, Yuriy has made quite a name for himself. In addition to being the Principal of the CSO strings, he is an adjunct faculty member at the College of Charleston, has taught at the Charleston Academy of Music, was interim Music Director of the CSO, and he is the current CSO Artistic Director, Concertmaster since 2007, and Principal Pops Conductor since 2016. The list is long and spans the globe for all his solo and group performances, his role as guest violinist and conductor, and his numerous awards. Originally from Minsk, Belarus, Yuriy’s family emigrated from the Soviet Union to Brooklyn, NY when he was 10 years old. As a teenager, he demonstrated high violin proficiency as well as a passion for conducting and went on to earn his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Indiana University School of Music and a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. About his approach to performing, Yuriy has said, “I want to make the composers happy … [but] strives always to revitalize and reanimate classical music. The most fun aspect of my job is performing. I enjoy making music in an intimate way even on the big stage.” Yuriy’s 2016 debut CD, Twentieth Century Duos, received worldwide acclaim and a nomination for the International Classical Music Awards. We are thrilled to have the Yuriy Bekker Trio at St Andrew’s Jan 31, 2024.
