The Performance of a Life
Why do some people just play notes they are handed while others write new music in the world? In his captivating presentation, violinist Kai Kight will tackle this question, perform original music and share the inspiring story of how he became an innovative composer in a field of conformity. This session will leave you feeling inspired to take your future into your own hands and bring your unique ideas forward.
