Emerald City Music presents lively classical music shows in a casual, open bar South Lake Union setting.

South Korean violinist Jinjoo Cho – first prizewinner of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, Concours musical international de Montréal, and more – joins Emerald City Music for our first-ever full length concert for only the solo violin. Three vastly different works bring into vision a “circle of life” narrative. Beginning with the wandering mysteriousness of Biber’s Passacaglia – one of the world’s oldest surviving solo violin works – the night gives way to Bach’s stately Chaconne, widely considered the apogee of violin repertoire. Juri Seo’s Toy Store – a multimedia work dedicated to Jinjoo Cho – is not music for children, but rather a reflective journey through the various experiences of childhood that live on in our minds as adults.
