About Orchestra of St. Luke's with Alisa Weilerstein

World-renowned cellist Alisa Weilerstein, a 2011 MacArthur Fellow and alumna of our Evnin Rising Stars mentoring program, returns to Caramoor for Dvorak’s Cello Concerto — called one of the greatest of all cello concertos — with our resident Orchestra of St Luke’s conducted by former Caramoor Artistic Director Peter Oundjian. The 2019 season opener also features Stravinsky’s breathtaking Firebird and a curtain raiser by Canadian composer Gary Kulesha.
