"While the opening program of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra’s season Friday in the Ferguson Center classified it as ‘Pictures at an Exhibition,’ by far the work that captured the attention of the audience and the evening was guest violinist Sandy Cameron in a work written for her by Danny Elfman…The score is high adrenaline business, taking us on a musical roller coaster ride from the heights to the sudden-drop depth of emotions… The physical and emotional energy she [violin soloist Sandy Cameron] put into the work was downright compelling, exciting and extraordinary…The reception given her [Ms. Cameron] — and JoAnn Falletta and orchestra which were exemplary — was wild and crazy and prolonged, of the sort found at sports events. No question about electricity in the air." Read full review here.
Unsung heroine of the concert performance, violinist Sandy Cameron caresses and slashes her violin - named Peter - with all the panache of Edward Scissorhands.
Sandy's electric performance at Lincoln Center and broadcast around the globe wowed audiences around the world this past October. With virtuosic flourishes and nuance, Sandy brought the music of Danny Elfman to life, sonically sculpting the vivid imagery of Tim Burton's masterpieces.
