EPIC with TOCCATA Tahoe Symphony
The EPIC performances begin with selections of the J.S. Bach choral masterwork, Mass in B Minor, performed by the Tahoe Symphony Orchestra, Chorus and soloists. The second half features violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn performing Felix Mendelssohn’s celebrated Violin Concerto in E minor.
In all performances of EPIC, virtuoso violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn plays in collaboration with the world-famous “Red Mendelssohn” Stradivarius violin which was previously owned by the Mendelssohn family. These performances will be particularly meaningful as Ms. Pitcairn will be playing the Mendelssohn Concerto on the Red Mendelssohn violin.
Ms. Pitcairn is featured in a DVD special feature of the Academy Award-winning film “The Red Violin,” and regularly performs with top orchestras around the world. TOCCATA is thrilled to showcase this incredible talent during our EPIC series.
