String Theory Outreach Initiative
For Elementary Schools
DANNY KOO, violin
January 22-26, 2020 – Chattanooga & Cleveland, TN
In the past four years, String Theory has brought award-winning musicians and ensembles to present educational outreach programs in our communities. We have reached over 6,000 students, many of whom live in communities with little access to the arts and are experiencing live classical music for the first time.
Described as “unstinting in energetic projection every step of the way” (Calgary Herald), we are excited to welcome the charismatic young Korean-American violinist Danny Koo for this season’s outreach residency. Danny is a well-known media personality in Korea with a passion for reaching children through his music. He will be presenting a program focusing on the relationship between voice and the violin. This presentation will include classical repertoire by composers Johann Sebastian Bach, Benjamin Britten, and Astor Piazzolla. Danny believes “that with the violin and voice, violin may be difficult to understand, but everyone sings.” This philosophy will provide an enriching and exciting learning experience for the young people in our community! Stay tuned for more information regarding performance schedules.
