Kentucky native Tessa Lark is an Avery Fisher Career Grant winner and recipient of a Leonore Annenberg Fellowship grant in 2014. An experienced soloist and chamber musician, she plays on the “ex-Gingold” Stravidarius violin made in 1683. 

 

Pianist Roman Rabinovich has enjoyed an international career since winning the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition.

The Embassy of Sweden invites the whole family to participate in a day of creativity, imagination, and fun on November 4, 2017 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in House of Sweden.

One of the highlights of the day is the children’s theater piece Guji Guji by the acclaimed Boulevard Teater performing group, which is based in Stockholm, Sweden and is on a United States tour. Based on the popular book by Chih Yuan Chen, Guji Guji is a tale about differences and similarities, love, friendship, and thinking for yourself.

 

With performances starting at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, participants will have two opportunities to see Guji Guji at the House of Sweden.

Boulevard Teatern will also perform Guji Guji at other venues during the Kids Euro Festival.
