Lara St. John, violin
Martin Kennedy, piano


Sunday, October 23, 2022 at 4pm


Canadian-born violinist Lara St. John has been described as "something of a phenomenon" by The Strad and a “high-powered soloist” by the New York Times.

Performing for us for the first time, and accompanied by pianist Martin Kennedy, Lara St. John has appeared in major concert halls, here and abroad. Los Angeles Times wrote Lara St. John happens to be a volcanic violinist with a huge, fabulous tone that pours out of her like molten lava. She has technique to burn and plays at a constant high heat.” She also owns and runs her own label, Ancalagon, which she founded in 1999.  For us she will perform a varied program including works by Debussy, Franck, Jessie Montgomery, Milica Paranosic, and Martin Kennedy.
