The Summerville Orchestra's upcoming "Buona Sera!" series will feature renowned instrumentalist Cassie Pilgrim on Feb. 10 and 11 at the Summers Corner Performing Arts Center.
Pilgrim, the principal oboist of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, is slated to play Oboe Concerto in E-flat Major by 19th-century composer Vincenzo Bellini.
Formerly with The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Pilgrim is billed as the "highlight" of Summerville Orchestra's Buona Sera! concert performances.
“I am so excited to have such a proficient oboist join us for this concert,” said Summerville Orchestra's Music Director Wojciech Milewski. “The oboe is one of the pillars for a great orchestra. Cassie’s extraordinary artistry will introduce our audience to the marvels of the oboe”
This Italian-themed concert is the third of the 2022-23 season and is closely associated with "The Godfather" Orchestral Suite. Sponsored by The Anthony and Janice Oglietti Charitable Fund, the program for this music event includes what's being described as the "dynamic" and "dramatic" Symphony No. 3 in D Major, D. 200 by famed Austrian composer Franz Schubert, who wrote the symphony when he still only 17 years old.
To attend or listen in on the performances, visit SummervilleOrchestra.ludus.com. Tickets are $22 for adults and $2 for those under 18. Livestream access is $20.
