Event Details:

Artistic Partner Pekka Kuusisto’s playing exudes joy and his rendition of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor is sure to be a fresh and exciting interpretation of a beloved classic. Kuusisto will also conduct the SPCO for the world premiere of a new chamber orchestra piece by Berkeley-based composer, Cindy Cox, and leads the orchestra from the violin in Louise Farrenc’s Third Symphony, an unjustly neglected work by an important French mid-19th century composer who taught at the Paris Conservatory.

Please note: All tickets will be held at will call. Please arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the concert to pick up your tickets. If you have any questions, or if you or a member of your party have any special accessibility requirements (e.g. wheelchair seating, large print programs, etc.), please contact our Ticket Office.
