Icelandic violinist Judith Ingolfsson, the 1998 gold medal winner of the International Violin Competition, will lead a violin master class Monday, Nov. 18 at 9 a.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University. The class is free and open to the public.
Ingolfsson made her solo orchestral debut in Germany at the age of eight. Since then she has appeared in a number of orchestras throughout the world. Her critically acclaimed performances have been broadcast on PBS and CBS Sunday Morning. In 1999, National Public Radio's Performance Today named her Debut Artist of the Year, praising her "remarkable intelligence, musicality, and sense of insight."
Ingolfsson will perform a concert as featured soloist with the Long Bay Symphony at Myrtle Beach High School Sunday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.
The event is sponsored by Coastal's Department of Performing Arts. For more information about the master class, contact the Wheelwright Box Office at 349-2502.
