November 6, 2020 – On Friday, November 13th, 2020 at 7pm, Music in the Mountains (MIM) will welcome 2020 Grammy nominated artist Tessa Lark in a one of a kind live-stream performance. Ms. Lark will wow viewers with her impressive artistry and technical skill at both Classical and Bluegrass violin.
Born in Kentucky, she began playing the violin at age 6. Ms. Lark started her musical career by playing in her father’s Gospel Bluegrass band, Narrow Road. At 16, she was accepted into the New England Conservatory (NEC). She is a graduate of both the NEC and The Juilliard School.
“Nevada County has a long-standing history of audiences flocking to both Classical and Bluegrass performances, so imagine my excitement when Tessa Lark expressed interest in playing for us,” said MIM Executive Director Jenny Darlington-Person. “She is a player of unparalleled passion and skill, equally engaging when playing both Bach and Kentucky bluegrass. She and Ryan Murray, MIM’s Artistic Director & Conductor have planned a show that audiences will love.”
