A Career With Intention: violinist Jennifer Koh

 

CAG alum Jennifer Koh will be joined by President Tanya Bannister for a discussion about Jennifer’s career path.

Recognized for intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance, violinist Jennifer Koh is a forward-thinking artist dedicated to exploring a broad and eclectic repertoire, while promoting diversity and inclusivity in classical music. A 1994 winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition, Jennifer has blazed her own trail, expanding the contemporary violin repertoire through a wide range of commissioning projects and premiering more than 70 works written especially for her.

The event will be broadcast live – check out Concert Artists Guild and The Violin Channel on Facebook, or CAG’s YouTube channel to join the stream. All are invited to participate and ask questions!
