Upbeat with Alasdair: In Conversation with Jennifer Koh

Tuesday, February 22, 2022, 6:30 PM MST

In person at the Community Library or broadcast online on the Festival’s website and YouTube channel


The broadcast will be available here on the Festival website beginning February 22.

You may also watch from the Festival’s YouTube page or by steaming on a smart TV through the YouTube app.

Music Director Alasdair Neale will engage superstar violinist, and curator of the Festival’s upcoming Winter Season, Jennifer Koh in conversation around the many ways in which she has forged her own path in classical music. This includes her noted project “Alone Together,” in which she commissioned 40 news works for solo violin during the pandemic—some of which Winter Season concertgoers will hear later in the week. The project met three of her goals: adding new music to the repertoire, engaging new and diverse artists, and bringing music to people in new ways. Join Neale and Koh as they talk about the future of classical music and the roles that composers, musicians, and conductors have to play.
