MARCH 11, 2023
John F. Welsh Auditorium Doors open 7:00pm,
Concert start 7:30pm
with Sandy Cameron, violin
Violin Concerto No.1
Symphony No. 7
Opening the March concert is Anne Guzzo’s 2004 composition Wyoming Voices. Guzzo, whose compositions have been performed by ensembles world-wide, is a Wyoming native and a professor at the University of Wyoming.
Violinist Sandy Cameron, one of the most striking musicians of her generation and a frequent collaborator of composer Danny Elfman, will be joining the WSO to bring to life Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto. As one of the most popular and well-regarded pieces of music in solo violin repertoire, its spirited, gypsy-flavored ending will transition us perfectly into the final piece of the concert.
The evening will close with a performance of Dvorak’s Symphony No 7. Dvorak is a composer whose work is largely characterized by its brightness and folk-themed melodies; this piece, however, has a much more dramatic tone that builds to an impassioned final movement, ending the concert on a grand note.
