Randall Goosby, violinist in free recital

  • Folly Theater 300 West 12th Street Kansas City, MO, 64105 United States (map)

Violinist Randall Goosby has already racked up an impressive set of achievements. At 13, he became the youngest person ever to win the prestigious Sphinx Concerto Competition. Now 23, Goosby has performed as soloist with orchestras across America and has been honored as a Rising Star of the Stradivari Society.

As an undergraduate at Juilliard, Goosby studied under Itzhak Perlman. Goosby shares with Perlman what The New York Times calls “a masterly level of control” and “exquisite tone.” Discover this exciting young artist who is destined for a stellar career. Pianist Jun Cho will perform alongside Randall Goosby at the October 5 concert.

In addition, Goosby won the Harriman-Jewell Series prize last fall, and will serve as our Artist in Residence to lead educational outreach in our Kansas City community in the days ahead of his Discovery Concert.
