Sophie Shao and Friends

March 29 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 – $25

Applauded by the New York Times for her “eloquent, powerful” interpretations, cellist Sophie Shao has a gift for assembling impromptu chamber ensembles that are brimming with passion and talent. If you’ve never heard her play before, or if you’re a veteran of her concerts, you’ll realize why no season is complete without one of her marvelous performances! The concert program will include Messiaen’s Quartet for The End of Time, and Vermont composer David Ludwig’s Spiral Galaxy.

Winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and top prizes at the Rostropovich and Tchaikovsky competitions, Shao is a versatile and passionate artist whose performances the New York Times has described as “beautifully phrased and interestingly textured,” the LA Times noted as “impressive,” and the Washington Post called “deeply satisfying.” She has performed to critical acclaim as soloist and in ensembles throughout the U.S., the U.K., and in Japan. When not touring, she teaches on the faculty of the University of Connecticut. She plays on a cello made by Honore Derazey from 1855 once owned by celebrated cello legend Pablo Casals.
