Today we go to my good friend Yumi Hwang Williams and her daughter Ava, who live very close to Evergreen, the town where I grew up in Colorado!
Yumi has been Concertmaster of the Colorado Symphony since 2000, and she is also Adjunct Violin Professor at the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music. Before coming to Colorado, Yumi was Principal Second Violin for the Cincinnati Symphony. She started violin at age 10 in Philadelphia, one year after emigrating from South Korea. When she was 15, she was accepted to the Curtis Institute and also made her debut as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. She also specializes in new and contemporary music - recently she recorded Isang Yun's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 1 for an album with cellist Matt Haimovitz called Sunrise Falling.
Yumi and Ava have prepared for us a yummy and easy Turkish Hummus. You are sure to never buy Hummus again after making this. Enjoy!
