Mendelssohn + More: Nampa

Simone Porter
Violinist Simone Porter has been recognized as an emerging artist of impassioned energy, interpretive integrity, and vibrant communication. After performing last season with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the LA Times declared Simone "on the cusp of a major career." In the past few years she has debuted with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the LA Philharmonic; and with a number of renowned conductors, including Charles Dutoit, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Nicholas McGegan, Ludovic Morlot, and Donald Runnicles. Born in 1996, Simone made her professional solo debut at age 10 with the Seattle Symphony and her international debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London at age 13. In March 2015, Simone was named a recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant.

Join us in Nampa or Boise for an evening of beautiful music.

With wit and effervescence, Prokofiev's Classical Symphony pays an affectionate homage to composers of the classical period, particularly Haydn. In Prokofiev's words, "It seemed to me that had Haydn lived to our day he would have retained his own style while accepting something of the new at the same time." Lyrical passionate and highly technical, Mendelssohn's Concerto for Violin features our superb guest soloist Simone Porter. Sibelius' bold and expansive Symphony No. 5 elicits some of the composer's most mesmerizing and inspired music.
