Jacob Schnitzer, guest conductor (biography)

The Austin Civic Orchestra partners again with The University of Texas at Austin for the 10th Texas Rising Stars concert at Bates Recital Hall. The winners of the Butler School of Music’s String Concerto Competition perform concerti accompanied by the orchestra.

This collaborative concert between the Butler School of Music and Austin Civic Orchestra was conceived by UT professor Brian Lewis and is funded in part by the David and Mary Winton Green Chair in String Performance and Pedagogy.

This concert is free – a gift to the Austin community.  

Full program:

  • Schumann: Cello Concerto in A minor, Op. 129
    Nicht zu schnell (1st movement)  performed by Katsuaki Arakawa
  • Walton: Viola Concerto
    Andante comodo (1st movement) performed by Shen-Chieh (Jason) Lan
