VALENTINES IN STRINGS: CHAERIM & DEREK SMITH
Between them, these Chamber Dance Project musicians have performed in settings ranging from the Kennedy Center to Carnegie Hall and played and worked with artists as diverse as Pinchas Zukerman and Barry Manilow. The focus is more intimate in this pre-Valentine’s Day evening: just the two of them.
In performance and conversation, they use music to trace significant milestones in their individual careers and their life together as a performing couple. Chaerim and Derek will perform several works and “deconstruct” one of them to help audience members hear and understand the music in greater dept. The will also give several audience members a short lesson on the violin as they discuss the technical and artistic aspects of playing.
