Portrait of an Artist 3: Christina McGann, Violin

  • Forgeron Cellars 33 W Birch St Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)
Christina McGann

Tonight’s performance has been made possible by the generosity of Albert Marshall.

It was June, 2008. A future Festival Board member was digging in his backyard. He heard a sound that caught his attention. A violin. A good violin. A darn good violin! What piece is that? Who could be playing this amazing music?

It was the first season of the Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival, and violinist Christina McGann was practicing in her room at the Festival rental house on Catherine Street. The music was the demanding Tempo di ciaccona from Bartok’s Sonata for Solo Violin.

The future Board Member was none other than jazz trombonist, composer, and Whitman College Professor, Dave Glenn. Dave understands what happens when Christina plays. Come find out for yourself as the Festival visits Forgeron Cellars for the first time. You will forge an instant friendship with Christina, just as Dave did seven years ago.
