Distinguished Major Recital - David Katahira, violin
The McIntire Department of Music presents a free Distinguished Major Violin Recital by David Katahira on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 8:00 pm in Old Cabell Hall. The recital features pieces composed by Jean-Marie Leclair, Aaron Copland, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Camille Saint-Saëns. Second Year students Yumin Kim (viola) and Nicholas Rupert (cello) will perform with David as a string trio for the Beethoven piece. Dr. Shelby Sender (piano) will accompany David on the other pieces.
David Katahira is a Fourth Year undergraduate student from Burke, Virginia. He has studied the violin with Professor Daniel Sender throughout his time at the University. He has participated in the McIntire Department of Music's chamber ensemble since his second year, performing in string quartets and piano quintets as the first violinist. As a First Year student, David was a violinist for the former Charlottesville University Symphony Orchestra, now called the Charlottesville Symphony. David has performed in several weddings in the Charlottesville area and the Homecomings Rotunda Reopening celebration in October 2016 with his string quartet. Following graduation, David plans to work for two years before attending law school.
This recital is supported by the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund. Established in 2004 by the generosity of Mr. Alan Y. Roberts ('64) and Mrs. Sally G. Roberts, the Charles S.
