Soloist Change for May 22nd

Soloist Change for May 22nd

The Evanston Symphony Orchestra is sorry to report that Arlen Hlusko will no longer be the soloist in our upcoming May 22nd concert. Arlen has a serious shoulder injury. The Dvořák Cello Concerto soloist will now be Sihao He.  He has already won numerous awards and has a close connection with Evanston. He has a Master's Degree from the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, and is currently studying there for his D.M.A. degree under the tutelage of Hans Jorgen Jensen.

Maestro Eckerling said, “It is highly disappointing that Cellist Arlen Hlusko had to withdraw from our performances due to injury. This is an unfortunate part of the music business. While we are so disappointed with the short term bad news, we look forward to working with her on another project in the future. Fortunately for us, we have another wonderful cellist replacing her.”
