David Fickes, violin.
Violinist David Fickes will present a senior recital with pianist Asher Severini on Friday, May 26, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in Music Room 1145. Works by Igor Stravinsky, Jean Sibelius, and Camille Saint-Saëns. Admission is free.
David Fickes is a fourth year student at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he has studied violin with Yuval Yaron and Ambroise Aubrun and is pursuing a Bachelor of Music in violin performance. While he was born in California, he grew up in Vermont before returning to his roots. He transferred from the University of Vermont, where he was pursuing a dual degree in computer science and English, after a transformative experience touring the country with Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra of the USA. Having pursued many different interests, he is excited to find a way to integrate the various fields he has studied into both performing and teaching music.
