Tina is a visual/audial synesthete, which means that she sees music and hears colors and shapes. Her latest project is Synesthesia: A Concert of Visual Music and Musical Art.

We had scheduled Tina Larkin to do a Children’s Rhythm Concert during our city’s Festival of Music. We had even more adults than kids show up, and the adults wanted to participate too!
