Canadian virtuoso Lara St. John is a “volcanic violinist”, says the LA Times, with “a huge, fabulous tone” and “technique to burn.” Experience her live with Symphony Nova Scotia in a red-blooded performance of Mendelssohn’s final tour de force – his passionate, show-stopping Violin Concerto. Plus, hear delightful performances of Brahms’ rich, joyful Haydn Variations alongside the intricate and charming Pulcinella Suite.

Check out Lara St. John’s phenomenal playing:

"St. John played with the air of a rock star. Her powerful performance alone was more than worth the price of admission."
