The Kennett Symphony will host David Kim, Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra, as he presents “From Prodigy to Professional: A Life in Music” on Sunday, April 28 at 2 PM at The Gables at Chadds Ford.
During this fundraiser for the benefit of the Kennett Symphony, Kim will describe his experiences and struggles in reaching the pinnacle of his career. Interspersed with performances of some of his favorite works, this is a humorous, sometimes jarring, and often poignant story not to be missed.
Kim was named Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1999. Born in Carbondale, Ill., 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.
The Kennett Symphony’s mission is to present a wide range of symphonic music at an affordable price to entertain and enrich the lives of its audience; educate young and underserved audiences; and provide opportunities for young artists and capable musicians to perform.
