Sinfonia Classical Connections feat. Violinist Corinne Stillwell
Sinfonia Gulf Coast Classical Connections Series features Violinist Corinne Stillwell at Grace Lutheran Church on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets available online at sinfoniagulfcoast.org.
The final concert of the Silver Sands Premium Outlet's Classical Connections Series welcomes violinist Corinne Stillwell to perform alongside Sinfonia's principal musicians. Stillwell, who is on faculty at both Florida State University and the Brevard Music Festival, joins us as guest concert master on Copland's "Appalachian Spring" (13-instrument version) and Mendelssohn's "Octet" and will be the featured soloist on Piazzolla's "Las Cuatro estaciones porteñas" (The Four Seasons). The superb acoustics in Grace Lutheran Church will be the pitch perfect backdrop for this performance.
Violinist Corinne Stillwell entered The Juilliard School at the age of ten, where she subsequently spent 15 years, working with Dorothy DeLay, Joel Smirnoff, Earl Carlyss, and Samuel Sanders. A versatile musician, she is equally in demand as a teacher, soloist and chamber musician, and has spent 25 years as a concertmaster and orchestral leader. As a recitalist, she has performed at Carnegie’s Weill Hall, Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess series, and in Germany, Canada, and across the United States. With a repertoire of nearly 30 concerti, she has appeared frequently as soloist with numerous orchestras, including the New Jersey Symphony, the Nanjing Philharmonic in China, the Amarillo Symphony, the Greater Rochester Women’s Philharmonic, and on tour to Romania, Hungary, and Poland.

Classical Connections is presented by Silver Sands Premium Outlets and Sinfonia Gulf Coast. Tickets range from $29.50 to $45 per person. Tickets available online at sinfoniagulfcoast.org.
