Events / KU Symphony Orchestra with special guest Joshua Roman, cello
Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
The University of Kansas Symphony Orchestra (KUSO) will perform with Joshua Roman, an outstanding young musician who spent two seasons as principal cellist of the Seattle Symphony, a position he won at the age of 22. Since then, he has dedicated himself to performance, artistic leadership and the creation of new works. Roman has appeared as a soloist with some of the world's top symphonies. For this concert, he will perform Edward Elgar's iconic cello concerto.
KUSO is the premier orchestral organization in the KU School of Music, led by the internationally-known Director of Orchestral Activities David Neely. He is recognized for his polished, expressive performances leading the KUSO in repertoire ranging from the Baroque period to 21st-century masterworks. Symphony members are KU students from the School of Music and other degree programs who audition for seats in this elite student ensemble.
