ON THIS DAY | Today is Violist Kim Kashkashian’s Birthday!


Today is violist Kim Kashkashian’s birthday!

A student of Karen Tuttle, Ms Kashkashian is a former prize winner at the Lionel Tertis and ARD International Viola Competitions.

She currently holds a teaching position on the faculty at the New England Conservatory.

Recently, Kim's studio violists recorded 'Hymnus, Op. 57' by Julius Klengel, arranged for 12 violas by Jean-Loup Lecomte. Aim to fight hunger in local communities, the video is part of the Music For Food initiative, to which you can donate here.
