With a little luck, violinist Chee-Yun's time in Boise won't be like her season-seven cameo on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which involved women in wheelchairs chasing Larry David through her performance. Nevertheless, expect plenty of dramatic action - on the stage. In a night dedicated to violin, the Boise Philharmonic will tackle Sibelius' "Lemminkainen's Return" and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade," while Chee-Yun serves as guest artist on Felix Mendelssohn's beautiful, challenging Violin Concerto in E Minor.
