Named in honor of its founder, violinist and professor of music emeritus Richard Luby, the Richard Luby Violin Symposium offers participants an intensive one-week immersion focused on individual instrumental and musical growth within the context of a supportive and nurturing atmosphere. The symposium celebrates its 10th year May 22-28, with free concerts and events.
Luby founded the violin symposium in 2008. He was a UNC professor of music from 1979-2013. He was a renowned violinist and a master teacher for over 40 years. Luby had a special interest in the solo violin Sonatas and Partitas of J.S. Bach and performed them, on baroque violin and modern violin, to widespread critical acclaim at the Wigmore Hall in London, Merkin Hall in New York, the Chopin Academy in Warsaw and throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America.
All activities take place on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus in the Kenan Music Building and Person Hall.
