Saturday, May 16th - 7:30PM
Cubberley Theatre
admission free

A full complement of professional wind and brass players join PACO's string orchestra to perform large orchestral works from the Classical and Romantic repertoire.  Our principal cellist Katherine Tseung, winner of PACO's concerto competition, performs Schumann's heartbreakingly beautiful cello concerto.   An early masterpiece by the incomparable Beethoven, his Symphony No. 2, and the world premiere of a new work written for PACO by Youth-for-Youth Commission winner Thomas Feng round out this program.  
The performance will also feature members of PACO performing movements from the chamber music repertoire, including Smetana's string quartet From My Life and Dvorak's massive G-major quartet.
Concerto Competition Winners with Sinfonia

The remaining winners of PACO's annual Concerto Competition will perform their own concerto movements on May 31st at 3:00PM, joined by the Sinfonia Orchestra.  Join us for pieces by Mozart, Dancla, de Beriot, Barber, and Schumann!
