Rachel Lee Priday

College Symphony Orchestra
with Rachel Lee Priday, violin


Saturday, March 7
8:00 p.m. King Concert Hal
$15 general / $8 students with ID
(general seating)



Combining a fierce intelligence with an imaginative curiosity, virtuoso Rachel Lee Priday is acclaimed for her beauty of tone, riveting stage presence, and "irresistible panache" (Chicago Tribune). An artist who seeks contemporary resonances with masterworks of the past, she has been praised by critics for her "dazzling, forceful technique," "rich, mellifluous sound" and "silvery fluidity." Priday joins forces with the Fredonia College Symphony under the direction of Dr. David Rudge for one of the most beloved concertos in the violin repertoire. The program includes Glinka's Overture to "Ruslan and Ludmila," Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, op. 35, and Sibelius' Symphony No. 1 in E minor, op. 39.
