Seattle-raised violinist, Simone Porter joins the Town of Kiawah to perform classical music accompanied by pianist Armen Guzelimian. The concert includes works from Mozart, Janacek, Pärt and Brahms. Simone Porter made her professional solo career at the age of 10; now at just 19 years old, she is internationally acclaimed and garnered worldwide attention for her command of the violin. In March 2015, Porter was one of five musicians to receive the Avery Fisher Career Grant, and on the same day, she signed her first major management deal with Opus 3 Artists. In Oct. 2015, after Simone Porter played with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the LA Times stated, “Her assured, lovingly lyrical, occasionally frisky playing only confirmed what is becoming common knowledge in the musical world: that she is on the cusp of a major career.” Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see a rising star and violinist prodigy – the best part is it won’t cost you a dime. Sponsored by the Kiawah Arts & Cultural Events Council, complimentary tickets are available beginning Jan. 13, 2017 online at www.kiawahisland.org/special-eventsor in person at Kiawah Island Town Hall 843-768-9166.
