World Premiere at Wisconsin Philharmonic Season Opener
World Premiere of Academy Award-winning composer John Corigliano's "Sonata for Violin and Orchestra" to headline The Wisconsin Philharmonic's 2012-13 season opener at the Oconomowoc Arts Center.
Violinist Lara St. John of London, Ontario joins The Philharmonic for the first time since January 2009 to premiere Corigliano’s Sonata. In addition, the concert’s second half features Sir Edward Elgar’s widely recognized Enigma Variations.
The Wisconsin Philharmonic thanks its generous concert sponsor, the Harken Family Foundation as well as Arts Waukesha for sponsoring the premiere of Sonata for Violin and Orchestra. Ms. St. John’s performance is sponsored in part by a grant from the Hess & Helyn Kline Foundation.
