Colburn Academy Virtuosi
Joined by Colburn’s Academy Virtuosi and fellow Colburn alumna Aubree Oliverson, Anne Akiko Meyers shares a program titled “Doubles,” which features the fiery interplay of two violins in works such as Bach’s Double Violin Concerto and Handel-Halvorsen-Heifetz Passacaglia. The yearning melodies of Philip Glass’s Echorus and Fanny Mendelssohn’s soulful String Quartet bring the program to a close.
The Academy Virtuosi is an elite conductorless chamber orchestra comprised of talented young musicians from Colburn’s Music Academy. The ensemble has performed with renowned violin soloist Ray Chen; was featured on Unite for Ukraine, a benefit concert presented by North America’s top music programs and conservatories; and has received side-by-side coachings with the Sphinx Virtuosi. The Academy Virtuosi is directed by Margaret Batjer, concertmaster of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
