Bringing the gift of music, Kenneth Olsen, assistant principal cello, and Yuan-Qing Yu, assistant concertmaster, visit young patients in the Armand Trousseau Children’s Hospital, a pediatric-care facility in Paris’ 12th Arrondissement. Their chamber-music performance was just one of several CSO-related activities conducted ahead of the orchestra’s first concert at the Philharmonie de Paris on its European tour.
