March 23 and 24, 2019
Richardson Auditorium

Chelsea Knox, principal flute of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and former principal flute of the PSO, returns as soloist in Lowell Liebermann’s melodic Concerto for Flute and Orchestra. Missy Mazzoli’s ethereal Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) provides a glimpse of the infinite, and Dvořák’s joyful Eighth Symphony fills the hall with delightful, folkloric melodies.

Chelsea Knox’s playing has “expressive life and full tone.” – Classical review
