Santa Rosa Beach - Christ the King Episcopal Church is honored to welcome Benjamin Sung, Ph.D., as he performs Paganini's 24 Caprices from Opus 1 as a violin solo on Sunday, March 15 at 1 p.m.
Sung is currently the associate professor of violin at Florida State University, and a faculty artist and violin coordinator at the Brevard Music Center and principal second violin of the Brevard Music Center Orchestra. Sung’s performances have taken him around the world, and he will continue that trajectory in 2020 with his Paganini concert touring in Canada, Taiwan, Brazil and across the United States. Sung is currently working on a new solo album featuring works by Sciarrino, Berio, Maderna, and Schnittke, and is an accomplished TED Talk speaker.
"I'm always happy to return to the 30A communities, and I'm especially excited about sharing this unique program with the people there,” Sung said. “The 24 Caprices of Paganini take you on quite a journey, and I'm looking forward to experiencing that journey in the beautiful space at Christ the King.”
Sung will lead a pre-concert discussion over a light lunch beginning at 12:30 p.m. in Sandefur Hall. The concert will begin promptly at 1 p.m. Attendees are urged to arrive early. All concerts at Christ the King are free of charge and open to the public thanks to the generous support from patrons, parishioners and church offerings.
