A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR CONCERT SPONSOR
The second concert of our Music Director Search Series features conductor Kelly Kuo.
“Praised as ‘a leader of exceptional musical gifts, who has a clear technique on the podium and an impressive rapport with audiences,’ Maestro Kelly Kuo brings a dynamic versatility and nuance to a diverse repertoire, which includes over 90 operas and an expansive symphonic repertoire as well.”
He will be joined on stage by guest artist Amber Archibald-Sešek, viola, performing Dobrinka Tabakova's arrangement of Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata.
“Praised for bold and vivacious playing that matches her personality, Amber Archibald-Sešek has performed at major venues and festivals throughout the United States and Europe, where her technique is ‘seemingly effortless…precise’ and she’s considered ‘a natural in every sense.’”
