On November 10, cellist Inbal Segev will join the Symphony of Westchester as a guest soloist. Led by the Symphony’s founder and artistic director Barry Hoffman, Segev and the Symphony will perform Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85. Of the composition, Segev says: “I feel spent after playing it… It is an elegy for a world that is no longer, and was written as a response to the great war – World War I. I believe the message in this work is timeless and universal.” Also on the program will be Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, Op. 95 in E minor “From the New World.” Segev has performed as a soloist with orchestras around the world, from Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to Bankok Symphony. The Symphony of Westchester, now in its 22nd season at Iona College, is a professional orchestra of more than 60 musicians. The performance will take place at Iona College’s Christopher J. Murphy Auditorium. For more info, visit thesymphonyofwestchester.org.
