    Name: Warm Up with a Fiery Violin Concerto Featuring the Great Elizabeth Pitcairn, and Mendelssohn's Thrilling "Elijah"!
    Date: February 16, 2019
    Time: 4:00 PM - 4:00 PM PST
    Event Description:
    TOCCATA-Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus presents celebrated American violin virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn performing one of the 10 greatest violin concertos of all time.  And more than 100 singers and instrumentalists bring you Mendelssohn’s spectacular “Elijah.” Hear the concert at Carson Valley Methodist Church in Gardnerville on Saturday, Feb. 16th at 4:00 p.m.  Other performances Feb. 9 - 17 in Incline, South Lake, and Reno. Elizabeth Pitcairn has earned a stunning and well-deserved reputation as one of America's most beloved soloists. She performs with one of the world's most legendary instruments, the "Red Mendelssohn" Stradivarius of 1720 (the "red violin"). In Wieniawski's "Violin Concerto #2," Ms. Pitcairn shows off virtuoso bowing techniques and flashy embellishments, as well as her phenomenal musicality that will move you incredibly. For "Elijah," Mendelssohn pulled out all the stops: expect angels singing from on high, and depictions of the storm, earthquake, lightning and fierce wind that precede the "still small voice" of God. And, spoiler alert, Elijah ascends to heaven in a fiery chariot!
