Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

One of the finest chamber orchestras in the world, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, is renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of musical masterworks. The orchestra will be joined by Gary Hoffman, a cellist renowned for the fullness of his sound and his impeccable technique—which he employs to bring his exceptional artistic sensibility to the fore.

Note: Cellist Johannes Moser had been scheduled for this performance, but he has withdrawn for health reasons.
