MCO / Gemm New, Sam Casseday

In with the New!

For all the famous, veteran soloists the MCO presents, we feature nearly as many young prodigies on the cusp of fame. Guest conductor Gemma New and double bassist Sam Casseday are surely among them. With jaw-dropping artistry, 23-year-old Casseday will perform a double bass arrangement of Mozart’s 5th violin concerto, otherwise known as ‘The Turkish.’ You know the tune. You’ve heard it on violin and as a cellphone ringtone—but have you ever heard it on a big, bad double bass?
