Renowned violinist Elmar Oliveira will perform Violin Concerto in E minor, op.64 when the Westchester Chamber Symphony presents an all-Mendelssohn program on Sat., May 5, 2012 at 8 p.m. at Iona College’s Christopher J. Murphy Auditorium, 715 North Ave., New Rochelle.
Oliveira remains the only American violinist to win the Gold Medal at Moscow's Tchaikovsky International Competition. He was also the First Prize winner at the Naumburg International Competition and the first violinist to receive the Avery Fisher Prize. In addition to performing with many of the world’s best known orchestras, he is also an active recording artist. His repertoire stretches from classic violin standards to new pieces by contemporary composers.
In addition to Oliveira’s Concerto, the WCS program also includes Scherzo: Midsummer Night’s Dream, op.61 and Symphony no.4, op.90, A major (Italian).
Tickets are $50 for general admission, $40 for seniors and $15 for students. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org, www.westchesterchambersymphony.org, or (914) 654-4926.
