David Kim & Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”

David Kim

“From Prodigy to Professional – A Life in Music” Talk & Concert with David Kim, concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and string musicians from the Mead Witter School of Music.

Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim has a story to tell about his experiences and struggles to reach the pinnacle of his career. Interspersed with performances of some of Mr. Kim’s favorite works, this is a humorous, sometimes jarring, and often poignant story not to be missed. Kim will then lead UW-Madison strings in a program of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons,” plus three works for violin/piano: Brahms Sonatensatz, Kroll Banjo and Fiddle, and Massenet’s Meditation from Thais.

Pre-college students welcome!
