Astral violinist Kristin Lee and special guests take you “Around the World in 80 Minutes!” For this imaginative world chamber music collaboration between Kristin, Astral Artists and LiveConnections, Kristin performs world premieres by composers whom she commissioned to write new works for unusual pairings of violin with another instrument. The five award-winning composers—each also a well-established artist who will perform with Kristin—bring the distinct sounds, styles and backgrounds of their native countries to the pieces they’ve written.
Guest composer/performers include Andy Akiho, steelpan; Vivian Fung with Jason Vieaux, guitar; Jakob Ciupinski, theramin; Shobana Raghavan, South Indian singing; and Patrick Castillo, spoken word.
Since 2008, LiveConnections has served as a creator and curator of innovative music experiences. Our ClassicAlive concert series expands how classical music is experienced by breaking boundaries of repertoire, collaboration and atmosphere. For more information, visit liveconnections.org
