Felix Mendelssohn – Hebrides Overture op 26.
Franz Josef Haydn – Cello Concerto Hob. VIIb:1 C Major.
Robert Schumann – Symphony No 4 op. 120 D minor.

Described by Mstislav Rostropovich as “one of the leading cellists of his generation, in our time”, Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt was the 1st prize winner of the inaugural Christchurch-based Adam International Cello Competition.

Since then he has become a highly sought after soloist, chamber musician and conductor, appearing with some of the finest orchestras in Europe including the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in Paris and Prague Philharmonia.

Schmidt will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C major and lead the orchestra in performances of two works by the great romantic composers – Mendelssohn and Schumann.

Please note that vehicle access to the Papanui Road entrance of St Margaret's College has been restricted due to safety concerns. The pedestrian entrances on Winchester, Andover and Shrewsbury Streets will be open and there is a carpark on Andover Street for people with mobility stickers and concerns.
