SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Festival Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Jun Nakabayashi, performs its annual Finale Concert, on Saturday, June 11, at 8 p.m. featuring cellist Amit Peled.

“Sounds of the Baltic,” a concert featuring the works of composers from nations bordering the Baltic Sea, will be held in the Recital Hall at the Purchase Theatres, 735 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase.

Peled will be the guest soloist, performing Tchaikovsky’s “Variations on a Rococo Theme” using the historic Goffriler circa 1733 cello that belonged to cellist Pablo Casals. The program will also include Carl Nielson’s rarely heard “Helios Overture” and Sibelius’ “Symphony No. 2 in D Major.” There is a suggested admission of $18. Students may attend free of charge.

Peled, an Israeli-American cellist, was voted by Musical America as one of the most Influential Music Professionals of 2015 and is a Professor at the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University.
