The QCSO Signature Series at Augustana College features the orchestra's principal cellist, Hannah Holman, with pianist Rene Lecuona, in a program of another "three Bs" -- Beethoven, Leon Boellmann, and Frank Bridge. Boellmann (1862-1897) was a French composer best known for organ works. Bridge (1879-1941) was an English composer, violist and conductor.
Ms. Holman began her professional career in England with the English String Orchestra under Yehudi Menuhin. She studied at the Eastman School of Music and Michigan State University, and earned her master's degree at the New England Conservatory.
She has served on the faculties of the Worcester College (UK), Michigan State University Community School, and Virginia Union University.
Dr. Lecuona has performed throughout South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the U.S., including at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
