SooBeen Lee, violin
Caroline Shaw: Entr’acte
Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony no. 7
Happy Birthday, Beethoven! Celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday with the WSO. His Seventh Symphony is one of his most celebrated works, both energetic and dramatic. And, hear two living, female rock stars in action, back-to-back! First, Pulitzer-prize-winner Caroline Shaw’s haunting Entr’acte, a gorgeous work for strings based on a string quartet by Haydn. Then, violinist SooBeen Lee makes her debut with the WSO in Mendelssohn’s indelible Violin Concerto, a piece filled with heart and virtuosity.
