as they join Maestro Robert W. Butts

 Special Guests Lynn Czae, Robert Watt, & Shenghua Simon Hu

Lynn Czae, piano, is founder and President of The New York Classical Music Society. Lynn has performed with orchestra and in chamber music concerts throughout The United States, Europe, and Asia. With Maestro Butts, she has played concertos of Mozart and Beethoven. She organized the orchestra's unforgettable concert at the DiMenna Center in New York City featuring international artists.

Robert Lee Watt, French horn, is a legend in the orchestra world. He was the first African American French Hornist hired by a major symphony in the United States when he was offered a position with The Los Angeles Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta. Robert has appeared in three concerts with Maestro Butts, performing with his colleagues in works requiring 3 or 4 solo French horns - works by Georg Phillip Telemann, Franz Joseph Haydn, and Heinrich Hübler.

Shenghua Simon Hu, violin, is a young star already developing a world reputation. Following his performance of Mozart's Concerto #5 with Maestro Butts at the DiMenna Center, Simon was hired as violinist in the famed Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.

Other NYCMS artists who have appeared with the orchestra include guitarist Stanley Alexandrowicz, pianist Adam Kent, sopranos Dominika Zamara, YuJung Bae, Seunghee Park-Cha, baritones Aiden Kim, Michael McAvoy, Robert Feng, and violinist SungSic Yang.
