Overview

The haunting beauty of Debussy’s Sunken Cathedral sets the stage for a transformative journey inspired by the pairing of poet Terrance Hayes’ powerful words and the shimmering transcendence of Jennifer Higdon’s Blue Cathedral. In the spotlight, Sphinx Competition winner Sterling Elliott’s magnificent Dvorak Cello Concerto celebrates humanity’s capacity to hope, heal, connect and triumph.

Sterling Elliott CELLO

From his cello-playing start at 3 to his concerto debut at 7, this prodigious young talent was hailed as an accomplished musician before he’d completed undergrad studies at the Juilliard School. Now a Koyner Fellow at Juilliard, he’s logged appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra and Boston Symphony, among others, with plenty more on the horizon.
