Tired of the same-old-same-old when it comes to music? Well, on Wednesday, May 29th, at the Cranford Community center at 220 Walnut Avenue in Cranford, The Friends of the Cranford Public Library are affording you an opportunity to hear other-worldly music, unlike anything you have likely heard before. And it’s free.
Caryn Kim is a New Jersey native who has been studying violin since the third grade. She later continued honing her craft at Northwestern University, and then abroad in Germany. It was in Germany that she discovered the ethereal sounds of the electric violin, and fell in love. Since then, she has travelled extensively with her electric violin, mesmerizing audiences with a sound unlike any other from any other instrumentation. Her website http://www.carynlin.com/ states, “Caryn has played everywhere from Lincoln Center to Six Flags; the Kimmel Center to the Crayola Crayon factory; an 800th anniversary of a monestary in the French alps to thousands of kids in school “cafetoriums”. Her music has been featured on MTV’s “The Real World,” and on 150 international radio stations including Sirius/XM satellite. She appeared performing in the movie Philadelphia. As her educational Bach 2 Rock show enters its 10th year Caryn is recording her sixth studio album.
Many of Caryn’s work can be found on Youtube . . . including the “Bach to Rock” performance.” She will begin by performing, on a traditional acoustic violin, a simple Bach minuet. And then the true magic begins when she turns a one-woman show into what sounds like a trio through the technology of the electric violin. It’s a chance to listen to something new, without spending a dime or leaving town! Don’t turn your “Bach” on this opportunity!
