In these organizations, she has been a member of both the second and first violin sections, and has served as guest concertmaster. She has also performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Binghamton Philharmonic as guest principal second violin, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic, and the Rochester Chamber Orchestra. Sonya received her B.M. in violin performance and her M.M. in performance and literature from the Eastman School of Music, where her primary teachers were the esteemed teachers and performers, Zvi Zeitlin and Ilya Kaler. As part of her training, she also attended the Music Academy of the West, the Quartet Program, and the National Orchestral Institute, where she served as concertmaster. She is a member of the Symphoria String Quartet that plays concerts, educational performances, and conducts masterclasses in schools as well as in the community. She is active in many other local ensembles such as the Skaneateles Festival, the Society for New Music, the Civic Morning Musicals Recital Series, the Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music concerts, the Clinton String Quartet, and the Temple Concord concert series. Sonya has been guest speaker at an Eastman School Arts Leadership class, and at the Syracuse University’s Women in Leadership organization, and teaches at the Eastern US Music Camp. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Symphoria and is the chair of the Symphoria Education and Outreach committee. She lives in Baldwinsville, New York where she raises her three young children with her husband Matt and also teaches violin lessons out of her home.

Heidi Hoffman, cello Heidi Hoffman became a member of the Syracuse Symphony cello section in 1996 and was recently appointed principal cellist of Symphoria. She has been a faculty member at Wells College, Cornell University, and has taught at Ithaca College for the last 14 years. She was a full time member of the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra in Chicago from 1997-2004, and continues to play there in a part time capacity. She has been fortunate to play with many NYC chamber and orchestral groups, such as the American Symphony Orchestra, the Jupiter Symphony and the Tchaikovsky Chamber Orchestra, traveling to Japan, Germany, Russia, Paris, Guatemala, and Turkey. Originally from Bainbridge Island, WA, she soloed with the Seattle Symphony at the age of 17 as winner of the Seattle Young Artists Competition. She received a Bachelor of Music and Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music, and a Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts in Cello Performance from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, studying with Timothy Eddy.

Robert Auler, piano The New York Times commends Robert Auler’s playing for its “extraordinary rhythmic clarity and expression.” American Record Guide cites his “elegant tone and uncanny sense of voicing.” The Charlotte Observer writes that Auler handles “technical and virtuosic concerns with aplomb.” Auler’s playing has also been described as “beautiful” (Fanfare), “superb,” (Ann Arbor News) “stunning” (LaPorte Herald-Argus) “first-rate” (Cincinnati News-Record), “truly electrifying” (Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette) and “a knockout.” (Syracuse Post-Standard.) Auler has won first prize in national and international piano competitions, including the Society of American Musicians and the Stravinsky Awards. Auler has performed on six continents, including performances throughout the United States, Canada, Argentina, Venezuela, Germany, Austria, Holland, France, Denmark, the Czech Republic, China, South Africa and New Zealand. Notable venues include Carnegie Hall, Teatro Colon, and Shanghai Symphony Hall. Auler has performed in notable summer music festivals including the Aspen Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, the Monadanock Festival, the Michigan City Chamber Music Festival, the Saugatuck Chamber Music Festival, Nantucket Musical Arts Society, and Festival A Tiempo Caracas (Venezuela). He has collaborated with composers such as Steve Reich, Aaron Jay Kernis, Carter Pann, and George Tsontakis, and with world-class ensembles such as the Ying Quartet, MIRO Quartet and Sybarite5. Auler is also the founder and executive director of Laveck Concerts, a recital series that brings world-class classical music to an underserved portion of upstate New York. Auler records for Albany Records, performs frequently with Society for New Music, and Syracuse Symphoria, and serves as Professor of Piano at the State University of New York (Oswego). He and wife Tara have a 4-year old daughter, Katie, and a 1-year old daughter, Caroline. Auler is the 2016 winner of SUNY Oswego’s President’s Award for Scholarly and Creative Activity.

Beethoven's Legacy Expect the Unexpected: That’s our slogan for the year, and we continue to mix things up and break habits. This afternoon closes out our six-concert celebration marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827). But instead of doing so with one of his beloved blockbusters (like the Seventh Symphony, which opened our season), we’ve chosen a piece you may not know: the so-called Triple Concerto, composed around 1804. Like so many of Beethoven’s works, it defies conventions. But it does so in a genial way—surprisingly genial, given that it was composed shortly after he learned that he was going deaf. No earth-shattering gestures here—nothing like the vast span and dramatic outbursts of the Eroica Symphony, which was written at about the same time. Rather, what’s experimental here is the choice of a piano trio (piano, violin, and cello) as the “solo” instrument. The result is not a modernized version of the baroque concerto grosso nor even a reboot of the “sinfonia concertante” tradition (represented by Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra, performed at our last in-person Casual before the Covid shutdown). Rather, the Triple is a work that straddles the border between chamber music and concerto in a way that wasn’t seriously taken up again until the twentieth century. The result is less a heroic striving of soloist against orchestra (as we find, say, in Rachmaninoff) than a conversational interchange on two levels: within the group and between the group and the orchestra. Something else is unusual here. Given Beethoven’s skills as a pianist, you’d expect that the piano would take the lead, as it does in so many of his trios. In fact, the keyboard part is relatively simple. Was it written for Archduke Rudolph—who became a long-time student and supporter of the composer, but was still a teenager at the time? Perhaps; but in any case, as principal cellist Heidi Hoffman puts it, “The piano is accompanimental almost all the time.” Instead, the lead is taken by the cello. And that role is difficult: “It’s one of the hardest things written for the instrument,” with much of it placed in a “super-high register. It’s not like anything he’d written for cello before.” In fact, it’s harder than any of the Cello Sonatas.

familiar symphony by Franz Schubert, the Symphony No. 8 in B Minor (“Unfinished”). New Covid restrictions made a work of that size impossible, so instead, we’ll be offering the St. Paul’s Suite by Gustav Holst (1874–1934). It was composed in 1913, just a year before Holst’s most popular work, The Planets— and on first glance, it would be hard to imagine anything more different. Written for the string orchestra at St. Paul’s School where Holst taught, it’s as intimate in scale as The Planets is vast, as compressed as The Planets is effusive; and because of its folk-music roots (both in its general spirit and its quotation of specific songs) and its grounding in dance, it’s as earthy as The Planets is extra-terrestrial. And yet there are connections as well. If you have an aural image in your mind when you think of The Planets, chances are that you’re thinking of the brutal rhythmic pattern incessantly repeated in the first movement (“Mars”). Although there’s nothing brutal in the sunny St. Paul’s Suite, you’ll find similar kinds of repeated patterns—called ostinatos—throughout. You’ll hear the technique most obviously in the second movement (appropriately called “Ostinato”), where the second violins play the same figure over and over, with imaginative metrical displacements—only ceasing for a brief eight bars when the first violins try, unsuccessfully, to wrest it from them. Obsession is found in the last movement, adapted from the finale of Holst’s Second Suite for Band. This movement is based on a sixteenth-century folk tune “The Dargason”— what’s known as a circular tune, since it doesn’t really end, leading back instead to its beginning. With elaborations and musical commentary, it underpins the entire movement. But here, too, you should Expect the Unexpected: “underpins” turns out to be a key term, for about a minute into the movement, almost out of nowhere, “Greensleeves” emerges in the cellos. In a brilliant mirror trick, “The Dargason” turns from main material into accompaniment.

To put it more bluntly, it’s a terrifying piece for any cellist. So how did Heidi assuage her fears? The answer goes back to the strange hybrid form of piece. This is a work for trio, and she’s playing it with two colleagues with whom she’s been giving trio concerts, as the Finger Lakes Trio, for years. This helps in several ways. First, as violinist Sonya Stith Williams says, “you’re not the only one up there doing it. And we’ve played enough together so that we trust each other.” Intonation is easier with a group, too—and if it’s a group you’re familiar with, interpretation is easier as well, because, as pianist Rob Auler says, you don’t have to verbalize every decision: “We communicate with our ears more than our mouths.” Add to this the pleasures of playing with their own orchestra (they know what to expect from their orchestral colleagues) and those terrors have been replaced by an opportunity not to be missed—either by the performers or by the audience.

There’s more here, too. “Greensleeves” is in a different meter, and superimposing it on “The Dargason” is the musical equivalent, according to this afternoon’s conductor Sean O’Loughlin, of “patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.” Sean O’Loughlin? Like so much about this season, Sean’s presence this afternoon might be unexpected, too. He’s familiar, of course, as Symphoria’s principal pops conductor—but this is his first appearance on a “classical” concert, and he shows up with surprising repertoire. You might imagine him leading a concert of film music or of composers like Gershwin and Kurt Weill who danced along the fine line between classical and more popular music—but Beethoven and Holst? In fact, though, Sean is solidly trained in the classical tradition, too. He studied at the New England Conservatory after he graduated from Syracuse University, and the canonical classic standards were part of the “fabric” of his education. Then, too, he points out, Holst was a tremendous influence on film music (where would Star Wars be without The Planets?); and, on a more personal level, he says, “The Dargason” in the finale “works well with the apostrophe in my last name.”

A retired history professor at Syracuse University, Cissy attended faithfully and donated modest gifts loyally for many years. In Spring 2020, Symphoria learned that we would benefit from an incredible gift from Cissy’s estate. The timing and the amount of her gift has made it possible for Symphoria to keep planning and dreaming during the many obstacles our community has faced since March. We are grateful to Cissie and to everyone who has remembered Symphoria in their estate planning. Our one regret is that we didn’t know of Cissie’s plans!
