About Sungrai Sohn and Every Day a Gift

Sungrai Sohn, concert violinist and professor of music
at Sarah Lawrence College and Nyack College since 1980,
is distinguished for his international performances in
The United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Canada.

Sungrai has appeared as soloist and chamber musician with numerous orchestras and ensembles including the New York Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, Laurentian String Quartet, and Amasi Trio,
with performances at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center.
He is a recipient of the Maryland Women's Club Award,
Artist International Award, Jack Kahn Award and Honored Diplomat
at the Algiers Fourth International Music Festival.

He is a grand prize winner of the Korean National Competitions
in violin solo and in chamber music as well as a winner of
"Friends and Enemies" of the New Music Competition.

Sungrai will perform favorite violin works and also show a film,
"To Have and To Give" by David Esposito, his brother-in-law and
his living-donor, which documents their journey through
the organ-transplant experience in 2001. The film also highlights
his life as a musician, and as an individual able to maintain
peace and optimism, despite years of illness and uncertainty.

Sungrai was the grateful recipient of a whole-liver transplant in 2014.
