Lakeside Symphony Orchestra Concert with Cellist Kim Cook

Date

Aug 8, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium

Established in 1963, the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is one of Lakeside’s most cherished traditions. Bringing classical music to the Chautauqua community, the orchestra performs seven concerts during its month-long residency.

The orchestra’s fourth concert of the summer will feature cellist Kim Cook.

Cook has been called “the superb American cellist” and acclaimed for her “truly glorious tone.” She has performed as a soloist across the U.S., Europe, Latin America and parts of Asia, as well as toured extensively as an International Artistic Ambassador for the U.S. State Department, presenting concerts and master classes.

Cook is a graduate of Yale University and the University of Illinois and had the opportunity to study with Gabriel Magyar, Aldo Parisot, Alan Harris and Janos Starker.

In her current role at Penn State, Cook has developed one of the most important cello studios in the Northeast U.S., attracting talented cellist internationally. Under her direction, the Penn State Cello Choir has been recognized for its performances and for hosting the Penn State Cello Festivals. Her students have received many awards, assistantships and scholarships to continue their practice.

For the 2008-2009 academic year, Cook was honored with the title of Penn State’s inaugural laureate, which allowed her to appear as a highly visible representative of the university. Prior to Penn State, she was principal cellist of the Sao Paulo Symphony.

Her repertoire includes concertos by Dmitri Shostakovich, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Antonín Dvořák and Joseph Haydn, as well as solo sonatas of by Zoltàn Kodaly, George Crumb and Paul Hindemith.

Cook is also a roster artist for the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour.

The LSO, along with Cook, will perform the “Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104” by Antonín Dvořák. It was the last solo concerto by the composer.

After intermission, “Symphony No. 5 in D major, Op. 107,” known as the Reformation, by Felix Mendelssohn will be played.
