In making his first appearance in York, violinist and Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim will bring his trademark brand of virtuosity and warmth to the stage at 7 p.m., March 17, in York College's DeMeester Recital Hall, Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall. Kim and pianist Jeffrey Devault will present a recital of music by Stravinsky, Brahms, Kreisler, Sarasate and others. The concert, made possible by a generous gift from the Boustead Family Foundation, is open to the public free of charge.
Kim will also present a master class at 4 p.m. on March 17 in DeMeester Recital Hall. The class is free and open to the public. The master class will feature violin students of York College and the YCPrep Community Music School, as well as violin students from York and the surrounding area.
Kim received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School. In 1986, he was the only American violinist to win a prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. He presents master classes at many schools and institutions and serves as Artist-in-Residence at Eastern University. He appears as a soloist with the Orchestra each season, as well as with numerous orchestras around the world.
The YCPrep Community Music School, held on York College's campus, offers private lessons in voice, all instruments and jazz studies. Instruction is provided by exceptional instructors who, as faculty in the College's Division of Music, teach York's undergraduate students. The YCPrep also holds summer music programs for children of all ages and abilities.
