Concert: 'A Musical Homecoming' Featuring Maria Lambros, Viola @ Music Recital Hall

One Missoula’s most celebrated and accomplished musicians joins the String Orchestra of the Rockies on stage. Currently a Professor at the distinguished Peabody Institute of Music, Maria is a winner of the prestigious Naumburg Award and has been named as one of “Montana’s Leading Artists and Entertainers of the 20th Century.” Maria will be featured as soloist in Telemann’s G Major Viola Concerto and is then joined by SOR Artistic Director, Maria Larionoff, as both Marias perform the soulful “Atterberg Suite” for solo violin, viola and strings. We open this concert with a rarely heard work, the rhythmic and energetic “Concerto Grosso” by Giannini, a piece made popular by the legendary conductor Arturo Toscanini. Our program ends with our annual “Rising Stars” side-by-side event as we invite talented young string players from area high schools and the University of Montana to play in a special collaborative performance of the powerful Shostakovich “Chamber Symphony.” Please join us in this celebration of musical Missoulians!

Concert: 'American Virtuosi' featuring Stephanie Chase, Violin @ Music Recital Hall

The String Orchestra of the Rockies’ final concert of the season features the brilliant American violin virtuoso Stephanie Chase, who has been hailed as “one of the violin greats of our era.” A prize winner in the Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow, as well as a recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Stephanie made her debut with the Chicago Symphony at age 9 and has gone on to an international concert career, performing with all of the major orchestras in the world. Stephanie takes center stage as soloist with the SOR in the charming early Mendelssohn d minor concerto, as well as the dazzling “Ziguenerweisen” (Gypsy Airs) of Pablo de Sarasate. In February of 2019, the SOR’S performance of Stephanie’s fiery “A Fantasy about Carmen” brought down the house, and we are excited to have her come to Missoula as we close our 35th season of spectacular concerts. The program celebrates two other popular American musicians: the beloved George Gershwin in his “Lullaby” for strings and Oregonian composer and violist Kenji Bunch, whose jazzy “String Circles” closes our April concert. It’s a dazzling season finale, full of vibrancy and virtuosity! For more information about the SOR including the season concerts and guest artists, please visit our website: www.sormt.org.
