November 1, 2016 at 07:26 AM · Where did Hahn perform?

November 1, 2016 at 11:31 AM · Los Angeles, then Washington DC. Then this week Seattle and Chicago. Busy schedule!

November 2, 2016 at 04:41 AM · Just came from Hilary Hahn's Chicago concert. Her performance was very captivating. She drew in a young crowd, majority of the audience were younger than 30! She connected well with the crowd. She even kept us up-to-date with the Cubs Game 6 score!

We would definitely love to have her back here.
