Violinist David Garrett Comes To Sheldon Concert Hall 10/21
The Sheldon and KETC / Channel 9 present violinist David Garrett, Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 8 p.m. in the perfect acoustics of the Sheldon Concert Hall. Often called the "David Beckham of Violin," Garrett's amazing skill and thrilling live performances have made him a world-wide star, leading to international ad campaigns for Banana Republic, Montblanc and more.
A native of Germany, Garrett was exposed to nothing but classical music until he was 14. He discovered a new world of music - everything from Michael Jackson to Metallica - when he moved to New York to attend the Juilliard School and study with Itzhak Perlman. His repertoire, while still heavily classical with works including Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Bach's Air, and Mozart's violin concertos, reflects the rock, R&B and pop influences of his favorite non-classical music.
