Shenson Recital Series: Karim Sulayman, tenor, with Danbi Um, violin, and Juho Pohjonen, piano

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Tenor Karim Sulayman, whose “lucid, velvety tenor and pop-star charisma” (BBC Music Magazine) led to his first Grammy® win in 2019, joins forces with violinist Danbi Um and pianist Juho Pohjonen. Rising star Um was declared “utterly dazzling… [playing with] mesmerizing grace,” while Pohjonen has been hailed as “positively electrifying, the ideal blend of poise and passion” (Plain Dealer). Together, the extraordinary trio — who rarely performs together — will present an evening of romantic songs and chamber works. 

This event will be livestreamed.
