Orchestra Santa Monica To Host Final Concert Of Season Sunday, May 17:

For its fourth and final concert of the season next Sunday, May 17, Orchestra Santa Monica takes “A Forward Look Back”.

With the “Variations on a Rococo Theme” and the Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11, Tchaikovsky and Brahms look back to the 18th century for inspiration for their melodious forward-looking pieces. 

The concert also features The Overture in D Major by Boccherini and a Rondeau by the Chevalier de Saint-George.  

World renowned cellist Cécilia Tsan will be featured in the “Rococo Variations.”  

Born in Versailles, France, of Chinese musician parents, Ms. Tsan has won prizes at the Barcelona International Competition and the Florence International Competition as well as the Debussy Prize at the Paris International Competition held by the Guilde Française des Artistes Solistes. 

As a soloist, she has toured the world. Residing in Los Angeles, she is currently Principal Cello with the Long Beach Symphony.

Orchestra Santa Monica is also delighted to be joined by Elemental Strings Chamber Orchestra, directed by Josephine Liu. 

Elemental Strings, an organization that inspires and nurtures young musicians in Santa Monica, will be performing the St. George “Rondeau” with violin soloists from OSM.
