The Shippensburg Festival Symphony is an ensemble of professional musicians from Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, and Virginia. The orchestra was formed to provide regional audiences with top-quality professional orchestral performances.
Robert Treviño, guest conductor
Robert Trevino has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting American conductors performing today.
Trevino burst into the international spotlight with unprecedented success at the Bolshoi Theater in December 2013, when he led a new production of Verdi’s Don Carlo substituting for Vasily Sinaisky. The enthusiastic audience and Russian press praised Mr. Trevino, “There has not been an American success of this magnitude in Moscow since Van Cliburn". He was subsequently nominated for a Golden Mask award for “Best Conductor in a New Production". Appearances with some of the world’s top orchestras have followed in what can only be described as a sensational rise, since his initial success as a laureate of the Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition in France. Debuts with the Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte Carlo with Mahler’s Fifth Symphony have led to extensive touring plans throughout Europe and Asia, including inaugurating the new hall, Opera di Firenze of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Elsewhere in France, his regular appearances at La Folle Journee and La Roque D’Antheron, also resulted in immediate reengagements and a feature on the Arte Channel as well as broadcasts on France Musique and Radio France.
Maestro Trevino returns for his sixth season with the Shippensburg Symphony Festival Series, a welcome return for his many fans in the region!
Alexey Stadler, violoncellist
One of the finest young cellists of his generation and winner of the 2012 TONALi Grand Prix in Hamburg, Alexey Stadler opened his 17/18 season with appearances in a number of high level engagements across Europe, amongst them Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Haydn Orchestra Bolzano and Trento, Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.
He caused a sensation in his BBC Proms debut with Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 with Vasily Petrenko. Other highly succesful debuts include Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, San Francisco Symphony and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, both with Vladimir Ashkenazy, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra as well as the Young Philharmonic Orchestra Jerusalem Weimar, both under the baton of Michael Sanderling. Festival appearances included the International Chamber Music Festival Stavanger, St. Petersburg’s White Nights Festival, Menuhin Festival Gstaad and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.
Alexey Stadler performs with orchestras such as the Mariinsky Orchestra, Münchner Symphoniker, Irish Chamber Orchestra, Riga Sinfonietta or Qatar Philharmonic under renowned conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Marek Janowski, Tugan Sokhiev and Dmitrij Kitajenko.
Born into a family of musicians, Alexey Stadler began to play the cello at the age of four. He began his studies with Alexey Lazko and continued his education at the Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music in St. Petersburg. He has participated in masterclasses with David Geringas, Frans Helmerson, Michael Sanderling, Lynn Harrell, Steven Isserlis and Sir András Schiff.
Alexey Stadler studied with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar and has a scholarship from the “Oscar und Vera Ritter-Stiftung” and “Alfred Töpfer Stiftung” in Hamburg.
