About the Exhibition
The Floyd Center for the Arts & Virginia Blue Ridge Music Festival Presents:
David Park, violin & Wesley McCune, piano In an afternoon of Classical Music
Violinist David Park maintains a balance between his engagements as a soloist with orchestras throughout the world and his recital and chamber music activities. Park has performed solos and recitals in many of the world's great concert halls, including Carnegie Recital Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York, Salle Pleyel in Paris, and Sejong Music Center in Seoul. Park has also performed on national television and radio broadcasts in the United States, France, Hong Kong, and Korea. In 2016, Park received an award for Higher Education of the Year by Utah ASTA, where Finer Points proclaimed him as 'one of the best violin soloists and music pedagogues in the nation.'
Pianist Wesley McCune has performed as a pianist for more than 50 years in the United States and Europe. He has performed at the embassies of Austria, Great Britain, and Mexico in Washington DC, at Winfield House in London, at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and at the Robert Schumann home in Leipzig, Germany. He and his students performed for the inaugural concert of the Millennium Stage of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. In 2008, McCune received the Agnes Meyer Award for Outstanding Teaching from The Washington Post.
