“I think it’s my role as a musician to bring music to everyone.” Cellist Sujari Britt said these words at the age of 15, and I couldn’t agree more. The Mobile Symphony, Sujari and I want nothing more than for our music to touch you, the city of Mobile, and all of humanity. We hope this concert of Saint-Saens, Prokofiev and Anna Clyne will do just that.” – Scott Speck, Music Director
The Mobile Symphony salutes young talent and classical masterworks with Vivace! Young, vibrant and exceptionally talented – cello prodigy Sujari Britt performed at the White House when she was 8 and was a hit on public radio’s From the Top at 10. Now she’s set to wow Mobile audiences as she joins the MSO for the Saint-Saens concerto. Sujari has been playing music since she was 2-years-old and has been playing cello since she was 4. She recently earned her bachelor’s of music in cello performance at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. The concert includes Masquerade, a recent work by Anna Clyne that is a perfect fit for Mobile’s Mardi Gras heritage, and concludes with Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5.
