Mozart: Symphony No.35 “Haffner”

Cellist Pablo Mahave-Veglia resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he is a Professor at Grand Valley State University. Mr. Mahave-Veglia is a cellist and teacher of broad interests whose repertoire ranges from the early baroque, performed on period instruments, to his ongoing interest in researching, performing and recording the work of contemporary Latin-American composers. He counts among his musical influences his late mother, the noted piano pedagogue Mercedes Veglia, as well as such artists/teachers as Arnaldo Fuentes, Steven Doane, Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, Janos Starker and Uri Vardi.

Over the last couple of seasons he has been much in demand as a chamber musician, joining the roster for the Ontario-based “Magisterra Soloist” for a tour of eastern Canada, as well as performing as a member of the Harlem Chamber Players during their residency at the University of Iowa. This last year he played the complete Vivaldi Sonatas with harpsichordist Gregory Crowell at the “Music at Penn Alps” in Maryland, as well as travelling to his native Chile to play a recital at the Frutillar Festival, and play the Saint-Saëns Concerto with orchestras in Antofagasta and La Serena.

Dr. Mahave-Veglia performs his own edition of the Boccherini G Major Concerto, and likewise it has been used by others including the Berlin Radio Symphony. His current research on the 1934 Cello Concerto by American composer Leo Sowerby has a forthcoming publication.

HSO’s Classics Up-Close concert will give the audience a very unique opportunity to sit “up close” to the orchestra.  The orchestra will play works both contemporary and classic in a small setting at the First United Methodist Church…a lovely and lively space for orchestral music.

There will be spoken “program notes” by the conductor during the concert (therefore no pre-concert talk or Classical Chat).

Tickets are available online, at the Symphony office or at the door the evening of the concert (if available).

Cost: $22 Adults, $5 Students through college. General admission.
