A Tour-de-force for Violin with the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra
Cayuga Chamber Orchestra concertmaster Christina Bouey is the soloist in this weekend's concert at Ford Hall on the Ithaca College campus. She speaks with us about her deep love for Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto, and the story behind the composition of the concerto. The overture to the comic opera The Bartered Bride by Bedřich Smetana and Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No.5 are also on the program.
