The concert features a performance by popular Chinese violinist Sha Xiao Cao. She has performed the work at Carnegie Hall; recorded it with a Russian orchestra; and performed it with the Shanghai Symphony as part of the 40th anniversary of its premiere.

The evening will open with Rossini’s overture to “La Gazza Ladra” and, after intermission, the UWSO will end the season with Vassili Kalinnikov’s “Symphony No. 1.”
