Emil Altschuler Violin Virtuoso
Sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Gayle Goodin
In 2012, violin virtuoso Emil Altschuler performed in concert at the First United Methodist Church in Griffin. Emil's brilliant technique and vigorous performing energy captivated the audience. Many of the patrons who heard Emil have requested that he return to Griffin. In response to these requests, the Griffin Area Concert Association is proud to present Emil Altschuler in concert at the Griffin Auditorium on Monday, November 17, 2014 at 7:30PM.
One of America's finest virtuoso violinists, Emil Altschuler, performs at a world class standard and possesses a commanding stage presence. He received his Bachelor of Music from The Juilliard School and his Masters of Music from The Yale School of Music.
