Bay Area Rainbow Symphony (BARS) presents an evening of music under the baton of Daniel Canosa, artistic director. The program includes Mozart’s Overture to La Clemenza di Tito, Barber’s Violin Concerto op. 14 with Bettina Mussumeli, violin, and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 5 in E minor, op. 64.
First violinist of the Ives Quartet since 2005, Bettina Mussumeli received her B.A. and M.M. degrees from The Juilliard School. She has studied with Ivan Galamian, Dorothy DeLay and Paul Doktor, as well as chamber music with members of the Juilliard, Guarneri and Cleveland quartets. She has studied with Kato Havas at Oxford, England, focusing on the elimination of tension in violin playing.
After completing her studies at Juilliard, Ms. Mussumeli became co-concertmaster and soloist with the Italian chamber group I Solisti Veneti. She has performed throughout Europe, Australia and the Far East, and made numerous recordings for the Erato, RCA, Tactus and Concerto labels. She has collaborated frequently as guest concertmaster with the Orchestra Toscanini of Parma, Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna, Orchestra del Teatro di Cagliari and the Orchestra della Fenice.
This is Bettina’s second performance with BARS. Bettina lives with her partner Jodi in San Francisco.
