Violinist Rachel Lee Priday (Pry-Day), acclaimed for her beauty of tone, riveting stage presence, and “irresistible panache” (Chicago Tribune), has appeared as soloist with major international orchestras, including the Chicago, St. Louis, Houston, and Seattle Symphony Orchestras, the Boston Pops, and the Berlin Staatskapelle. Critics have praised her “dazzling, forceful technique,” “rich, mellifluous sound,” and “silvery fluidity.”
Rachel has been profiled in the The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times, Family Circle Magazine, and The Strad Magazine. Her television credits include appearances on the Disney Channel, Fiddling for the Future and American Masters on PBS, and the 2000 Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
Rachel and Bryan Wallick will perform the wonderfully lyric, Brahms ‘Sonata No. 2’, Prokofiev’s titanic ‘Sonata No. 1’, Beethoven’s tempestuous ‘Sonata in C minor’, and conclude with the wonderful ‘Gypsy dance Zigeunerweisen’ by Sarasate.
Audiences can hear this world-class violinist in Pretoria before she heads off the USA, Thailand and Vietnam for additional concerts.
Tickets are sold at the door for R110 (adults) and R85 (students and pensioners).
