Internationally celebrated concert violinist opens 21st season
Mimir Chamber Music Festival is thrilled to present Leila Josefowicz, internationally renowned concert violinist, recording artist and Grammy Award nominee in its 2018 season, July 2-8, 2018. Josefowicz, known for her passionate and electrifying performances, will perform opening night only with fellow Grammy Award nominee John Novacek, her longtime and critically acclaimed musical collaborator. Novacek, a familiar face at Mimir, will join a lineup of outstanding musicians from the world's leading orchestras, music schools and concert halls during the Festival's 21st season. Performances will be held at PepsiCo Recital Hall on the campus of Texas Christian University, with a matinee concert at the Kimbell Art Museum's Renzo Piano Pavilion.
Nationally recognized as a leading summer music series and teaching workshop, Mimir presents an intensive week-long immersion in chamber music performance and instruction by some of North America's most renowned professional musicians. Mimir Artists are selected not only for their superb performance skills, but also for their ability to teach three pre-formed groups who have been selected by international audition for participation. Four unique, exciting and provocative musical performances will be given during the festival by the professional musicians, with two concerts presented by Mimir Emerging Artists.
