Award-winning Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis breathes new life into existing styles with a high-energy blend of classical, gypsy jazz and folk music. His improvised sound is totally new and has popular appeal.
Classically trained and widely regarded as Stéphane Grappelli’s heir, regularly on tour with the fiery European gypsy guitarists, Kliphuis is a highly personal and inspiring performer, composer and educator.
He has shared the stage with legends Frankie Gavin, Richard Galliano and Les Paul and has been lauded for his musical genius by Nigel Kennedy. He was awarded the Scottish Jazz Award (International), has collaborated with the Richard Strauss Festival and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and is the curator of the Fifty Fiddles Festival, in Rotterdam’s De Doelen concert hall.
Tim Kliphuis is one of the world’s most popular string improvisation teachers. His workshops are hosted for string students of all backgrounds.
Tim will be joined by jazz guitarist Sam Miltich.
Tim's Workshop will be on April 18th at 4:30 pm in Reynolds Recital Hall in Howard Hall on the MSU Campus (across from the duck pond). This event is free and open to the public.
