February 28, 2017 at 06:10 PM · My daughter and I heard Vilde Frang Sunday afternoon. Her performance was breathtaking! The lady next to me was crying it was so good. We flew from DC just to hear Ms. Frang perform, as she has very few US stops on her itinerary this year. I hope she'll return to DC or NY soon. She's our favorite, and we've heard a LOT of violinists by attending concerts in DC at the Kennedy Center, Strathmore, etc! I would also like to commend concertmaster Alexander Kerr for his stunning solos. What a wonderful afternoon of music.
