VC LIVE | "The Rest is History" Celebrating 50 Years of KUN

This concert celebrates 50 years of KUN history and the family behind the business


We're coming to you from Ottawa, Canada, for KUN Shoulder Rest's 50th Anniversary concert, "The Rest is History" Celebrating 50 Years of KUN.

Presented in partnership with Ottawa Chamberfest, this event celebrates the global success of the Ottawa-based company and the accomplishments and generosity of Marina and Joseph Kun.

The evening will showcase performances by KUN Featured Artists Lara St. John and Kelly Hall-Tompkins alongside the Gryphon Trio, Chamberfest Artistic Director Carissa Klopoushak, and Afro-Cuban woman-led ensemble OKAN, performing music inspired by the 50 years of KUN history and the family behind the business.

To help celebrate this event, The Violin Channel, in conjunction with our good friends at KUN, is giving away five KUN Bravo collapsible shoulder rests.
