On Sunday, July 25, James Preucil, a 19-year-old violist from Schaumburg and student at The Juilliard School of Music, will perform a concert with William Koehler in the sanctuary of Barrington United Methodist Church. The concert will begin at 4 p.m. at the church, 98 Algonquin Road in Barrington.

The program will include the Cello Suite in C major by J.S. Bach (viola transcription), "The Sea Suite" for Solo Viola by James Preucil, "Marchenbilder" for Piano and Viola by Robert Schumann and "Concertpiece" for Viola and Piano by Georges Enescu.

 

Passionate about making his music accessible for a wide variety of audiences, Preucil has created his YouTube channel "Viola King." In addition to standard repertoire, he often incorporates his own compositions and arrangements into his performances. You also can follow him @ViolaKingYT on Instagram and TikTok.
