We begin this concert with Kevin Lau’s A Dream of Dawn and follow with Gabriel Faure’s Dolly Suite and Giuseppe Verdi’s Overture to Sicilian Vespers. Our feature guest artist for this concert is our very own Principal Cellist, Flora Camuzet who will play Edouard Lalo’s Cello Concerto.
After preliminary studies in cello, chamber music and orchestra in Paris, Flora earned a degree at the prestigious Conservatoire Superieur de Musique et Danse de Lyon. Her career has taken her from her home country of France to Japan, and Portugal and now Canada. Flora was our principal cellist in the 2016-2017 season, we were thrilled when she returned to this position in September 2018.
