The CSO Community Concert is a community engagement and learning program offered as part of the CSO’s strong commitment to the community and to music education. These concerts are presentations of Sound Discoveries: Music for the Community and are made possible in part by The Corbett Educational Endowment established by The Corbett Foundation and Mrs. Patricia Corbett.

The CSO is grateful to the Platinum Sponsor for these performances, Buddy Rogers Music. Additional

CSO Community Concerts

Each season, the CSO partners with a local school and performs a fundraising concert in support of its instrumental music programs. The CSO seeks community partner schools with a worthy fundraising project, suitable performance space and parent/support organizations who can help subsidize the basic concert costs through sponsorship. In preparation for the concert featuring the CSO, a variety of education activities throughout the district will include CSO musicians coaching instrumental music students.

Robert Treviño, CSO Associate Conductor

Since his professional debut in 2003 at the age of 20, Robert Treviño has become an emerging force on the international music scene. The 2012/2013 season marks the second season as Associate Conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Further engagements this season include a debut with the California Symphony Orchestra conducting Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61 and Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. Maestro Treviño ends his season with a residency at the

Treviño’s past symphonic and instrumental work includes numerous engagements with orchestras, festivals, and ensembles across North America, Europe, and Asia including the Orchestras of Cleveland, Philadelphia, the Symphonies of Cincinnati, Baltimore, Charlotte, Memphis, Napa Valley, New World, the Philharmonics of Chicago, Louisiana, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, Aspen Music Festival Orchestra, Suwon Philharmonic of South Korea, Wuppertal Symphony of Germany, Montpellier National Orchestra of France, Universidad Nacional Autonoma De Mexico Philharmonic of Mexico, the Millennium Chamber Players, and the Jusqu’aux Oreilles Festival of Canada. Of particular note was Treviño’s month– long residency with the Helsinki Philharmonic where he has assisted Music Director Leif Segerstam on the complete symphonies of Sibelius.

In addition to his great volume of work in the instrumental realm, an important component of Treviño’s career has been his work in opera. Formerly the Associate Conductor and Guest Conductor for the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center, he has led the world premieres of five operas as part of the annual VOX: American Opera Series. Treviño made an acclaimed debut with the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow Russia conducting Puccini’s Tosca in the 2011/2012 season. His success with this production has led to an immediate reinvitation by the Bolshoi to conduct performances of Puccini’s Tosca and to lead a production of Verdi’s Macbeth in the 2012/2013 season.

Additionally, as an avid advocate and performer of contemporary music, Maestro Treviño has worked closely with many leading composers and has been the recipient of numerous grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Art and has conducted the Ensemble Modern Academy Orchestra at the Klangspuren Festival (Schwaz, Austria).

Robert Treviño is a laureate of the 2010 Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition and was awarded the 2010 James Conlon Prize for Excellence in Conducting at the Aspen Music Festival and School by David Zinman. He also won a 2010 Career Assistance Award and the 2012 Career Development Award from the Sir George Solti Foundation, and was a featured conductor at the 2011 Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview. In summer 2011, Mr. Treviño was selected by James Levine to be one of three conducting fellows at the Tanglewood Music Festival where he worked with artists such as Mark Morris, Kurt Masur, and Emanuel Ax.

Mr. Treviño has studied with Maestros David Zinman, Leif Segerstam, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Kurt Masur.

William White, CSO Assistant Conductor

CSO Assistant Conductor William C. White began his musical career in his hometown of Bethesda, Maryland, learning viola from a saxophone player in his elementary school music class.

He soon figured out enough of the notes on the keyboard to write some modest compositions and from then his path was set.

An unexpected chance allowed him to conduct his High School’s

musicals and he nurtured his talent as a music director and conductor in Bethesda’s all-youth Wildwood Summer Theatre (WST). At the age of 18, a performance of

West Side Story at WST under his baton was professionally and critically acclaimed.

Mr. White attended the University of Chicago, studying theory, composition and orchestration under the tutelage of Easley Blackwood. While there, he played viola in the Symphony Orchestra, sang in the Motet Choir and conducted numerous student concerts and theater productions.

He graduated in 2005 with honors for his senior thesis composition, Fantasy on “Les Folies d’Espagne”. During summers off from the University of Chicago, William studied conducting at the Pierre Monteux

School under Michael Jinbo, where he now serves as Conducting Associate.

After graduating college, he launched his musical career in Chicago, hustling for whatever gigs he could get. In three years, he held music director posts with the Hyde Park Youth Symphony, University of Chicago Chamber Orchestra, Presbyterian Church of Barrington, Rockefeller Chapel, and Union Church of Hinsdale.

During this time, he composed a number of works for a variety of performers, the largest of which was his oratorio for choir, soloists, and orchestra, Thy King Cometh. William produced his own recording of the oratorio during the summer of 2007, with a group of friends, collaborators and freelance musicians.

He then spent two years in Bloomington, IN, at Indiana University’s Jacob School of Music, studying conducting with David Effron and Arthur Fagen and earning his living as a music theory teacher and opera assistant conductor. He frequently returned to Chicago as a pre-concert lecturer for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and to play chamber music with old friends.

May of 2009 saw the first release of one of his compositions on a professional record label, Chicago’s Cedille Records. The piece, an a cappella setting of the “Nunc dimittis”, was recorded by the Wm. Ferris Chorale under Paul French.
