Teresa Cheung, Conductor. Sophie Shao, cello.

The Altoona Symphony Orchestra opens its 91st season in dramatic fashion with one of the most elegiac and soulful cello concertos, written right on the heels of the ending of WWI. English composer Edward Elgar’s Concerto for Violoncello will be performed by rising cello sensation Sophie Shao, whose performances have been noted as “eloquent, powerful” by the New York Times. This concert will also feature what Beethoven considered to be one of his best works: his Symphony No. 7. This work has been featured in several major motion pictures, most notably, The King’s Speech.
