Sally O'Reilly, violinist, will teach a master class at the University of Kansas School of Music on Thursday, March 17th from 1-3 p.m. in Swarthout Recital Hall. This master class is free and open to the public.

O'Reilly is known throughout the music world as a soloist, chamber musician, and pedagogue. She is professor of violin at the University of Minnesota School of Music in Minneapolis, and she studied with Ivan Galamian at Curtis Institute and with Josef Gingold at Indiana University, where she was his assistant. Later she studied with Andre Gertler and Carlo Van Neste in Brussels, where she was a Fulbright Scholar.

They have been first prize winners in numerous competitions including the Vittorio Gui in Florence, Italy, the Tokyo International, Irving Klein International, Music Teachers National Association student competitions, and the Banff String Quartet Competition.

She has held Fulbright Senior Lectureships to teach in South America, and has been visiting professor of violin in China, Austria, Ireland, Germany, Israel, Central America, Canada, and Korea.
