O’Connor is recognized as the premier violinist of the current generation. Both powerful, and traditional, he blends a faithfulness to tradition with a modern sensibility, creating a totally unique environment, musically and visually. While he has won his Grammy’s in folk and bluegrass, he has produced albums in jazz (after Stephan Grappelli, his friend and mentor), and has written Concertos for Orchestra and String Quartets.
Mark has been here before with this show and it is always a sellout, so get your tickets in advance. VIP tables will be decorated for the occasion, and will feature a special holiday treatment, so check those out especially.
