Kentucky-born violinist Tessa Lark performs Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with Jorge Mester conducting the Louisville Orchestra in a special donor appreciation concert December 5th at the Brown Theater. Classical 90.5’s Alan Brandt asked Ms. Lark about her path from Richmond, Kentucky, to winning the 2012 Walter W. Naumburg International Violin Competition in New York.
Classical 90.5 presents a performance by the Louisville Orchestra this Sunday at 6 pm on Louisville in Concert. The Louisville Orchestra brought the spirit of Paris to Whitney Hall on Feb. 24 and 26, 2011. The program included Haydn’s Symphony No. 83 in G minor, “The Hen,” Ravel’s Sheherazade (featuring mezzo-soprano Susan Platts), and Stravinsky’s Petrushka (1947 version).
