Ms.  Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, an internationally acclaimed violin soloist will conduct a Master Class at the church following the performances.  Nadja has become a darling of the media and a happy spokesperson for the cause of classical music. She has appeared several times on The Tonight Show, was the subject of a 60 Minutes program, and appeared on PBS in a “Mostly Mozart” concert broadcast from Lincoln Center.

“She is one of the world’s most extraordinary violinists, and she is spectacular to watch. … Every performance that Salerno-Sonnenberg gives seems to remind me that she is, perhaps, one of the few violinists today who can truly see and re-create the passion and intensity of the composer.”
