Gareth Johnson is a renowned performer, distinguished lecturer and artist in residence at Albany State University who has enthralled audiences from Carnegie Hall to the Kravis Center and throughout Europe. His world-renowned accompanist, Tao Lin, has performed with various orchestras across the globe including many international competitions. He is a regular guest artist at numerous music festivals, universities and conservatories. Together, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Lin will bring a world class concert to the Treasure Coast with repertoire that is versatile and exciting. Among other selections, the program will include a Sonata by Francis Poulenc and Tzigane by Maurice Ravel.
The Master Class will showcase 4 upper-level to advanced violin students who study with teachers who are members of Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association. Mr. Johnson will listen to each student perform his or her piece and then he will give advice, instruction and demonstrations to the student. The value of a Master Class is that students, teachers and the audience invariably learn and benefit from the presentation.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Arts Council and Women Supporting the Arts, this event will be offered to the public free of charge.
