The Fort Collins Symphony is pleased to welcome a pair of world-renowned guest artists to its second Masterworks performance, Paris to Prague, on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Center. Together, violinist Michelle Kim and cellist Clive Greensmith will perform Johannes Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello.

She has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, New Jersey Symphony, and Pacific Symphony.
