On Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 3pm, Music at St. Paul’s will present violinist Gareth Johnson and pianist Tao Lin in program featuring Beethoven’s “Spring” Sonata, Eugène Ysaÿe’s “Ballade” Sonata, and Max Bruch’s “Scottish Fantasy.” Mr. Johnson will also play his electric violin arrangement of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” The concert will be preceded by a 2:30pm pre-concert conversation with Gareth Johnson. Tickets are $20 and are available at the door on the day of the concert. For more information on this event and Music at St. Paul’s 30th Anniversary Season, visit music.stpaulsdelray.org. St. Paul’s is handicapped accessible.
“Both Gareth Johnson and Tao Lin are well-known among South Florida classical music audiences,” says Music at St. Paul’s director Dr. Paul Cienniwa. “Why are they well-known? Because they are both highly accomplished musicians! In fact, their reputations extend far beyond the South Florida audiences, from Gareth Johnson being a two-time winner of the Sphinx Competition to Tao Lin’s extensive discography. We are very fortunate to have them among us and, of course, playing at St. Paul’s.”
Cienniwa continues, “One of the unique things about this program will be Johnson’s use of the electric violin. Music at St. Paul’s is known as an acoustic, classical series, but it will be a breath of fresh air to hear one of our acoustic, classical soloists jam to some Gnarls Barkley soul!”
