Violinist David Kim was named Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1999. Born in Carbondale, Illinois in 1963, he started playing the violin at the age of three, began studies with the famed pedagogue Dorothy DeLay at the age of eight, and later received his bachelor's and master's degrees from The Juilliard School.
David Kim will, of course, perform with The Philadelphia Orchestra here at SPAC AND will participate in the SPAC Chamber Music Festival this Sunday. He will present, as part of a quintet, a program entitled “Night In Day” which will feature pieces by Stravinsky, Mozart, and Brahms.
