Sinfonia Classical Connections Featuring Violinist Jennifer Koh
Sinfonia Gulf Coast presents Classical Connections: Musical Time Travel on Friday, January 20 (7:30pm) at Destiny Worship Center in Miramar Beach featuring 2016 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year, violinist Jennifer Koh. Koh will perform American composer Samuel Barber’s “Concerto for Violin and Orchestra.” Tickets available online at sinfoniagulfcoast.org.
The Strad magazine describes Koh as a “risk-taking, high-octane player of the kind who grabs the listener by the ears and refuses to let go. Unlike so many players of this temperament however, she supports her mesmerizing flights of fancy with a beguilingly silvery tone, fabulous technique and dead center intonation.”
The concert, entitled Musical Time Travel, showcases a repertoire destined to take the listener on a musical journey, whether by time or location and features John Adams’ “Short Ride in a Fast Machine,” the “William Tell Overture” by Gioachino Rossini and the brilliant orchestral suite “Roman Festivals” by Ottorino Respighi.
This concert will be presented in conjunction with the annual Paint the Music project, allowing students to visually interpret excerpts of music prior to the live Sinfonia performance. These pieces of art will be displayed in the Destiny lobby during two morning performances on Jan. 20 for Okaloosa and Walton County third through eighth graders, as well as for the evening performance for the public. The education concerts feature the orchestra with a special appearance by Koh.
Join SINFONIA following the concert at Bijoux at The Market Shops for a special happy hour meet and greet with Jennifer Koh.
