First Saturday music in the Gallery

Our featured performer is Dr. Kasia Sokol-Borup.

Dr. Kasia Sokol-Borup is a native of Poland. She came to the US at age seventeen to study at the Interlochen Arts Academy. Kasia holds a Bachelor degree from Western Michigan University, a Masters degree from Northwestern University and a Doctorate degree from Indiana University.

Dr. Borup has been a professor of violin and viola at Fort Lewis College, and while living in Durango she also directed Durango Youth Symphony and was a concertmaster of San Juan Symphony. Her passion for teaching young musicians has been realized in her building the pre-college string program at the University of Utah two years ago (UofU Preparatory Division). In addition to directing the UofUPD, Dr. Borup is an adjunct faculty at the University of Utah.

Dr. Borup is an active solo and chamber musician in Salt Lake City as well as nationally. She has performed with the Utah Symphony, Sinfonia Salt Lake, Vivaldi Virtuosi and Utah Chamber Artists.

Dr. Borup lives in Salt Lake City with her husband-violinist, Hasse Borup and their children Sophia Rose and Christopher Bjorn. In her spare time, she loves hiking, running, and cooking.


A note from Dr. Borup:  

I am thrilled to be able to share some of my favorite music at Art Access. These short, 30 min performances are created to inspire, to make one feel, which then leads to feeling more connected. Connected to the music, to the world around us. Music has tremendous power and for me the most powerful feelings are those of love, safety and understanding. Somehow, Music communicates that which words can not.
