Musical Excursions: Jennifer Koh

Univ of New Orleans Performing Arts Center - Recital Hall
Getting there
Saint Anthony Avenue, New Orleans, LA

Violinist Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. An adventurous musician, she collaborates with artists of multiple disciplines and curates projects that find connections between music of all eras from traditional to contemporary. She believes that all the arts and music of the past and present form a continuum and has premiered over 60 works written especially for her. This season, Ms. Koh will perform works from Shared Madness which celebrates the support of her friends, encapsulates the intensity of the creative process shared between composer and performer, and ultimately reveals the incredible support network that exists between artists. Each composer has offered to write a solo violin work exploring the relationship between the violinist and the instrument.
