Once again, the orchestras of both Southern Illinois University campuses will be combined for an exceptional musical event. Michael Mishra, professor of music and director of Orchestral Studies at SIUE, and Edward Benyas, music director of the SIUC Symphony Orchestra, will conduct the concert. The guest artist will be Grammy Award-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio, who will play Dvorak’s much-loved “Cello Concerto.” Sant’Ambrogio leapt to international attention when she was a winner at the Eighth International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Russia.
