Symphony Spotlight highlights the careers of orchestral musicians across the country.
My guest today for our September segment is Rebecca Gilmore, Assistant Principal Cellist with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. Besides her duties with the orchestra, Rebecca teaches at the Academy of Music in Norfolk and performs with the Ambrosia Quartet, an ensemble she co-founded in 2005. They have an upcoming performance on Sunday, September 17th (4:00 p.m.) at Christ Episopal Church in Smithfield, VA. Rebecca’s father, Jimmy Gilmore, is a clarinetist and will be their guest artist. The quartet has performed throughout Hampton Roads, in North Carolina, and as far away as China in 2004. They are exploring both quartet and trio repertoire in pursuits of future recordings.
