Opening Night:  Jennifer Koh, violin

Jennifer Koh, violin 

The acclaimed Music Institute alumna and Glen Ellyn native returns to play a program featuring two solo works by Bach, juxtaposed with a contemporary piece for solo violin by John Harbison. Critics have described her playing of the  Bach Sonatas and Partitas as intense, beautifully shaped, and mesmerizing. “Koh’s arresting tone and emotional interpretations of Bach are a perfect fit for the acoustics of Nichols Concert Hall,” said Music Institute President and CEO Mark George.
