Guitarist JIJI and Violinist Danbi Um to Perform at Cooperstown Summer Music Festival August 22

Written By Editor on 8/17/22 | 8/17/22

Guitarist JIJI and violinist Danbi Um, both celebrated young virtuosos on their respective instruments, will present a duo performance at the Otesaga Resort Hotel on Monday, August 22 at 7:00pm, part of the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival’s 24th season.

The duo will present a genre-spanning program of works by Corelli, Paganini, Piazzolla, and Ella Fitzgerald, in a performance that will expand the audience’s conception of the capabilities of each instrument.

In addition to the wide-ranging program, Festival Founder and Artistic Director Linda Chesis says this performance offers something else: the rare opportunity to see these two superlative musicians join forces.

“These are two powerhouse performers taking the stage as a duo, which is an incredibly intimate format,” says Chesis. “You will get to see a side of these two that you won’t see anywhere else.”
