This week sees Alexander Shelley make his debut with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, conducting two concerts at the Marcus Center for Performing Arts Center. Alexander performs an eclectic programme including Walton’s First Symphony; a piece he also conducted last week for his debut with Orquesta Sinfonica de Valencia. The remainder of the programme features Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy with violinist Blake Pouliot.
Performances take place on 8 and 9 February 2019. Find out more here.
Plans for the rest of the season include Alexander’s return to Australia, where he makes his debut with Sydney Symphony, and an extensive European tour with his National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa. The tour celebrates the orchestra’s 50th anniversary and takes them to cities such as London, Paris, Copenhagen and Stockholm, among others.
