Concert Description

DSO concertmaster Yoonshin Song performs Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto, and Robert Treviño conducts orchestral favorites by Strauss and Stravinsky.


Robert Treviño, conductor  Bio

Robert 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, a native of Fort Worth, Texas by saying “There has not been an American success of this magnitude in Moscow since Van Cliburn”.

In summer 2011, Mr. Trevino was selected by James Levine to be the Seiji Ozawa Conducting Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Festival, where he led Mark Morris’ production of Milhaud’s Trios Operas Minutes. Mr. Trevino has spent a month with the Helsinki Philharmonic as a Conductor-in-Residence, at the invitation of Music Director Leif Segerstam, assisting on the complete cycle of Sibelius symphonies. His mentors also include David Zinman, Michael Tilson Thomas and Louis Langree, with whom he has been working closely during his tenure as Associate Conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Last year Robert Trevino became the Principal Conductor of the Shippensburg Music Festival.
