The Bucks County Symphony Orchestra (BCSO) announces our Spring Concert at 3pm, Sunday, April 27th at Central Bucks High School South. Headlining the program is the extraordinary violinist Nancy Bean, performing Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 in B minor. The BCSO will open the program performing Carl Neilson’s delightful Helios Overture, and we’ll conclude with Jean Sibelius’s monumental Symphony No. 2 in D major.
Nancy Bean, former Assistant Concertmaster of The Santa Fe Opera Company, and the Philadelphia Orchestra from 1986 until 2009, now devotes her talents to Chamber Music. In 1987 she founded the Wister Quartet, and performed in its chamber concerts with Wolfgang Sawallisch, Christoph Eschenbach, Emanuel Ax, Alicia de Larrocha, Radu Lupu, Yo-Yo Ma and Garrick Ohlsson.
