Jennifer Frautschi returns to perform Bruch’s Violin Concerto

PHOENIX, AZ (January 28, 2011) – The Phoenix Symphony continues its 2010/11 US Airways Classics Series and Rediscovered Masters Series with Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 (Reformation) March 3 – 5 at Symphony Hall.

Praised by the Arizona Republic as a “great musician” in her most recent performance with The Phoenix Symphony, Jennifer Frautschi returns to perform Bruch’s fiery Violin Concerto. Guest conductor Mei-Ann Chen also leads Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5, (Reformation) featuring Martin Luther’s A Mighty Fortress is Our God as part of the work’s powerful finale.

Violinist Jennifer Frautschi is critically acclaimed as an adventurous performer with a wide-ranging repertoire. She is equally at home in the classic repertoire as well as twentieth and twenty-first century works. Ms. Frautschi has created a sensation with soloist with Pierre Boulez and the Los Angeles Philharmonic; Christoph Eschenbach and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival; and at Wigmore Hall and Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival.

Newly appointed Music Director of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Mei-Ann Chen is one of America’s most exciting and promising young conductors. The first woman to win the Malko International Conductors Competition (2005), she recently concluded a highly successful tenure as Assistant Conductor of the Atlanta Symphony and is currently serving a one-year appointment as Assistant Conductor of the Baltimore Symphony.  Both positions were part of her participation as a conducting fellow sponsored by the League of American Orchestras.

Part of the US Airways Classics Series “Frautschi Performs Bruch,” will be held at Symphony Hall on March 3 at 7:30 pm, March 4 at 11:00 a.m. and March 5 at 8:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday’s performances are sponsored by Allan and Lois Mayer.

Tickets for “Frautschi Performs Bruch” start at $18 and can be purchased by calling the Phoenix Symphony Box Office at 602-495-1999 or by visiting
