    Accomplished violinist plays for commuters at Port Authority Bus Terminal

    HELL’S KITCHEN, Manhattan (WABC) — A highly trained violist is taking to Port Authority to warm up for the biggest stage.

    Judy Kang drew attention from otherwise bored commuters at the Port Authority Arts Stage, playing a sparkly electric pink violin.

    Kang is a classically trained violist and she has played in front of full orchestras to international acclaim with subtle and graceful elegance and power. She was a child when she played her first nationally televised concert.

    “I think I was nine years old,” Kang said.

    Privately, Kang wanted more, and a while back, she got a chance to explore that. After a lifetime on the classical stage, Kang played a whole tour with Lady Gaga’s band – and she learned a few things.

    “She is always growing,” she said.

    Now she is on a tour of festivals in New York and New Jersey playing whatever she feels like.
