Kirstin Fife Among Artists to Perform at GNC

Kirstin Fife

On Wednesday, Aug. 16 at 12:10 p.m., the Free Admission Glendale Noon Concerts program will be performed live in the sanctuary of Glendale City Church, 610 E. California Ave. in Glendale.

The concert will feature works by Luigi Boccherini, Kaspar Kummer and the premiere of a quintet for flute and strings by Los Angeles composer Kirstin Fife. Performing will be Katherine Marsh on flute, Kirstin Fife on viola, Jacqueline Suzuki on violin, Adriana Zoppo on violin/viola and Clement Chow on cello.

There are many wonderful violinists on the world’s stages today, but not many of them compose and perform their own original compositions along with those of the master composers of centuries past. Kirstin Fife has distinguished herself as one of these more rare musicians, consummate performer and composer.     

Many of her concerts are given in an intimate setting, such as private homes and small theaters. Also, she performs in regular concert series, such as the Glendale Noon Concerts, the Pasadena Presbyterian noon concerts, the Sunday musicale series at the Newport Beach Library and The Sunspace Thursday night concert series. Recently, Fife has been promoting and performing her performance piece “The Major Arcana” for violin and piano, which includes a slide show to enhance the presentation.

In addition to “The Major Arcana,” Fife has been performing her pieces based on the artwork of Salvadore Dali with the Dali Ensemble of Los Angeles. 

“Czechmate” and “Pieces of My Heart” are two CDs that she released in 1996 and 2011 respectively. In between were hundreds of recordings as a studio musician for movies, television and records including “Mission Impossible,”  “Jag,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Michael Jackson” and others. On camera, she has appeared on “American Idol,” “The Tonight Show” and “The Voice” and others.  Also, she has performed for all of the major awards shows including the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, the Country Music Awards, and the Grammy Awards (with Prince and Bruno Mars).

Fife loves to perform for charitable causes; these have included Alzheimer’s Foundation, The Red Shirt Project and Hope Gardens. She welcomes the opportunity to do much more of this kind of work.

Fife is in the business of creating, recording, performing and teaching. Her CDs are available on iTunes. Original compositions and arrangements are available on
