A lifetime playing the violin
serenades the N-train
Juilliard-trained artist began his unorthodox path to fame quite
by accident while practicing on a Long Island RR platform during
a delay in service. Over the ensuing years Graseck has enthralled
tens of thousands of straphangers and concert-goers, many of them
now a faithful following, with a repertoire ranging from Bach and
Paganini to Gershwin and Cole Porter. His audience is equally diverse,
from CEOs to rappers.
Jim communicates to his audiences through both
music and words. His ease with his violin and his audiences has
made the familiar sound new and the transcendent sound immediate.
His sheer virtuosity and riveting style are well represented with
virtuoso pieces, popular standards, show music and rock classics.
In addition to his solo work, Jim is violinist
Synergy String Quartet.
