  • Julliard Alumni, Tracy Silverman, performs selections on his electric violin

    by EYD Length:
    World renown electric violinist performed a "pre-show" for Fine Arts Academy students on Novemeber 18th. The next evening, students attended a YOSA concert featuring soloist, Tracy Silverman.  
     
    From Mr. Silverman's website (http://www.tracysilverman.com/bio/):

    "Lauded by the BBC as “the greatest living exponent of the electric violin”, Tracy Silverman’s groundbreaking work with the 6-string electric violin defies musical boundaries. The world’s first concert electric violinist, Silverman has been the subject of two major orchestral commissions, both composed specifically for and with Tracy: Pulitzer winner John Adams’ “The Dharma at Big Sur”, premiered with the LA Philharmonic at the gala opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2003 and recorded with the BBC Symphony on Nonesuch Records with John Adams conducting; and legendary “Father of Minimalism” Terry Riley’s “The Palmian Chord Ryddle” which Silverman premiered with the Nashville Symphony in Carnegie Hall on May 12, 2012.

    Formerly first violinist with the innovative Turtle Island String Quartet, Silverman was named one of 100 distinguished alumni by The Juilliard School. Shortly after graduating in 1980, Silverman built one of the first-ever 6-string violins and set his own course as a musical pioneer, designing and performing on an instrument that did not previously exist."
