Timmy catches up with MSO violinist Sarah Curro and what she’s been doing during this second lockdown.
KISS listeners will know the ad for This is Not a Violin, it is a Doorway about Sarah’s painted semi-acoustic violin. The Facebook Live book launch event is coming soon hosted by Sarah and the artist herself, ReVerse Butcher.
Apart from online teaching- connecting to places like Katherine High School in the Northern Territory, Masterclasses for schools around Melbourne and an American string teaching summit (!) -Sarah has a few other things on the go. She’s recorded 20 Classical duets for a Play Along album (does anyone remember Music Minus 1?) plus a new podcast called Splitting Hairs with her violin student breaking down myths of the Classical world.
and speaking of books Sarah has finally made the book TEXT, the one off art diary of a departed friend Benjamin Charles Paulsen made into a gorgeous coffee table book and in eBook format.
Sarah’s deep love for KISS FM can be observed through her show DIFFUSION, a collaboration with the electronic music producer Shaun Keyt who’s piece moved the most hardened people to tears at the premier.
Not just a Classical musician Sarah enjoys seeing what boundaries can be crossed in the name of creation and doesn’t mind paying for it either.
