Under the direction of conductor James Sadewhite, the Summit Symphony Orchestra will perform the Brahms Serenade for Orchestra in D and the Concerto for Violin in D by Beethoven.  Peter Winograd will return to the orchestra as featured soloist in the Beethoven concerto.  There will be a pre-concert lecture beginning at 2:15 for this performance.

Born into a gifted musical family, Peter Winograd began his studies with his parents. His father was the founding cellist of the Juilliard Quartet and his mother a professional pianist. He gave his first solo public performance at the age of 11, and at 17 was accepted as a scholarship student of Dorothy DeLay at The Juilliard School. Recognized early as an exceptionally promising young artist, Peter Winograd was a top prize-winner in the 1988 Naumburg International Violin Competition. Since his critically acclaimed New York debut, he has been heard with orchestras and in recital across the country. Mr. Winograd joined the American String Quartet in 1990. He continues to appear as soloist in the U.S. and abroad. Highlights of recent solo appearances include performances in Brussels, Helsinki, Parma, and the Great Hall at the Moscow Conservatory. This season he performed the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Hartford Symphony; his father, Arthur Winograd, was the featured guest conductor. He is a member of the violin and chamber music faculties of the Manhattan School of Music and Aspen Music School. His wife, violinist Caterina Szepes, is a regular participant in the Marlboro Festival and a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
