What's Interesting

  • Guest cellist Alisa Weilerstein is the winner of a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant. She first picked up a makeshift instrument at age 2 1/2 when her grandmother handed her a cello made out of a Rice Krispies cereal box.
  • Matthias Pintscher conducts his own Un despertar ("An Awakening"), a tender work written for her. Weilerstein is a champion of new music like Pintscher's. 
  • For best seat availability, join us for the matinee, and enjoy a little Sunday self-care.
  • April 27 is the final CSO Encore YP series concert of the 18/19 season.
