The San Antonio Symphony is pleased to announce the fall 2014 Russell Hill Rogers String Residency Master Class featuring renowned cellist, Julie Albers. Ms. Albers will be performing the Barber Cello Concerto with the San Antonio Symphony at the WEST SIDE STORY Classics series concerts on November 14, 15 & 16, 2014. The class will give aspiring local cellists firsthand interaction with this master musician.

A lot can be learned through observation. While only a limited number of cellists will be chosen to perform in the class, students of all ages are invited to attend and observe the class. Bring your family and friends! This event is FREE and open to the public.

Interested in performing in the class?

The San Antonio Symphony welcomes any advanced cello student of any age (middle school through college and beyond) to apply to participate in the master class. As space in the master class is limited, candidates for consideration should be advanced with regard to their age. Each participant in the class will be responsible for contracting a collaborative pianist.

In order to apply, a signed nomination form must be submitted by the candidate’s teacher. The nomination form must be accompanied by a short biography of the student. Please see the biography requirements on the nomination form.
