Cristina Pato, bagpipes 

Program:

Mazzoli - Sinfonia

The revolutionary ballet The Rite of Spring never fails to inspire with its pagan melodies and earthy rhythms. Missy Mazzoli, composer in residence with Chicago Symphony, is one of the classical music world’s fastest-rising composing talents. Cristina Pato’s magnetic stage presence and virtuosity showcases the bagpipes as a concert instrument in its own right.

Prelude: Join Rossen for a pre-concert discussion.
Postlude: Stay for a chamber music performance by Columbus Symphony musicians.
