We will be celebrating a very special anniversary this year - the 50th anniversary of the Shippensburg Symphony Festival Series!  And along with this momentous anniversary, we have lined up the amazingly talented Maestro Robert Trevino to return as conductor for both concerts.  The Shippensburg Festival Symphony performs for both performances.

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.

The Shippensburg Festival Chorus is 26 professional singers from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland and Virginia.

Robert Trevino, Series 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!
