Violin virtuoso Gomyo presents public masterclass at Loyola
November 22, 2013
Karen Gomyo’s combination of talent and technique has earned her a spot as one of the top violinists performing today, and Saturday, Nov. 23, the classical music star presents a free masterclass at Loyola University New Orleans.
The event is set for 10 a.m. in room 240 of the Communications/Music Complex, located on Loyola’s main campus.
Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity,” Gomyo was the recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2008 from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Her impressive resume includes performances with major orchestras around the world, including the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Tokyo Symphony and the Hong Kong Philharmonic, among many others. Gomyo will perform with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra at the Mahalia Jackson Theater Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23.
The masterclass is part of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra Masterclass Series at Loyola, which features a wide range of world-renowned musicians, including pianist Lilya Zilberstein, violinist Philippe Quint, Cuban musician and composer Paquito D’Rivera and organist Paul Jacobs.
Loyola’s College of Music and Fine Arts has a vast music program, with more than 500 undergraduate majors in the School of Music and Department of Music Industry Studies.
