Recital Series: Leila Josefowicz

”[A] violinist extraordinaire…the model musical citizen, doing her part to help the art form evolve.”
The Washington Post

Violin virtuoso Leila Josefowicz‘s commitment to and passion for contemporary music led to her being awarded a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship for her unique contributions to the arts. From child prodigy to go-to star for major commissions, the violin virtuoso curates inventive programs of modern music paired with pieces by 20th-century masters that have never sounded so contemporary in performance. Having recently won the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, she comes to the Board of Officers Room with pianist John Novacek to perform an adventuresome program that is sure to be breathtaking in its daring and excitement.
