A new SUNY Oswego Assistant Professor introduced herself to campus in a special way: by enlightening students with her violin.
Ahreum Kim, the campus’s new assistant professor in high strings and musicology, performed with Professor Robert Auler in front of an audience in Sheldon Ballroom. The sonatas consisted mostly of classical and romantic times in music.
Professor Kim not only had to perform the music, but also make sure that her movements accurately portrayed the specific emotions of the songs.
Reporter David Hermanovitch talked with Kim, who told him that to portray the emotion, she had to change her expressions at the same time, which is very tiring during the performance.
Overall, the performance was a creative way for Kim to begin her tenure with SUNY Oswego.
