ELGAR, Cello Concerto
DVORAK, Symphony No. 9
Maestra Marin Alsop on mentoring:
“I have never ascribed to the philosophy that ‘It was hard for me so it needs to be hard for you.’ Instead I believe that it was hard for me so that I could make it easier for the next person!”
This special program will highlight the winner of the 2006-07 Taki Concordia Fellowship, created by Marin Alsop to champion women conductors, leading Jennifer Higdon’s Fanfare Ritmico. Maestra Alsop will then lead the Orchestra in Elgar’s poignant Cello Concerto with Alisa Weilerstein, in honor of the 150th anniversary of Elgar’s birth, and Dvorak’s melodic Ninth Symphony.
