Gone: A Girl, A Violin, A Life Unstrung
Thursday, April 11, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm| €6 – €20
Continuing our partnership Cúirt International Festival of Literature and Music for Galway have co-curated this unique event featuring Min Kym, author and violinist in conversation with Toner Quinn.
Korean-born, London-raised violinist Min Kym talks about growing up as a child prodigy, shares insights into the world of a budding soloist and the special relationship a violinist develops with their instrument, in this case a priceless Stradivarius that was dramatically stolen from her in central London. She will read from her bestselling memoir, Gone: A Girl, a Violin, a Life Unstrung and perform some of the works mentioned in the book.
This event will be chaired by Toner Quinn, musician, Editor of online magazine The Journal of Music and Lecturer in Publishing at NUI Galway.
