Heroines & Heroes
Concerto debut & Beethoven’s favorite — featuring Concertmaster Shellie Kemp
Rossini’s upbeat Italian Girl in Algiers sets a happy stage for the premiere of Mississippi composer James Sclater’s concerto celebrating Shellie Kemp’s rise to MSO concertmaster — a contemporary work that also salutes their lifelong friendship and deep local roots. Beethoven’s pivotal and celebrated Eroica — a thrill for the musicians and even the composer’s own favorite — enhances and finishes the evening on a heroic high note.
Shellie Kemp The Jackson-born violinist began serving as MSO’s Concertmaster in 2021. Shellie received her Master of Music degree from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, a Bachelor of Music degree from Belhaven University, and numerous national fellowships and grants. Passionate about infusing communities with music, she is a founding member of NEW JXN, a contemporary music ensemble dedicated to bringing new music and opportunities to the community. Shellie plays a 2009 Gary Rickman violin, courtesy of the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation.
