About Stephanie Stathos

Stephanie Stathos earned her degree in Flute Performance from Boston University’s School for the Arts. Based in Lincoln, MA, Ms. Stathos is first piccolo for the Lexington Symphony. She has served as the piccolo and second flute with the touring orchestra of the National Lyric Opera of New York. As soloist she has performed throughout the United States and Europe. Other appearances include performances with many of New England’s ensembles including Boston Landmarks Orchestra, Rhode Island Philharmonic, Symphony New Hampshire, Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, Concord Chorale (NH), Newburyport Choral Society, and North Shore Chamber Music.

A lover of all forms of music – classical, jazz, new music, ethnic – Stephanie has performed as soloist throughout the United States and Europe. Here she is seen rehearsing Domenico Cimarosa’s Concerto for two flutes and orchestra with the Orchestra Del Concentus Musicus Patavinus in the Sala Dei Giganti in Padua, Italy.

photo description: The performance in the Sala Dei Giganti in Padua, with Stephanie Stathos, Flute]

Stephanie Stathos is the Principal Flute of the Cape Ann Symphony and the soloist in Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino for Flute. She is thrilled to play this special piece with CAS:

“Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino was commissioned by the Paris Conservatoire in 1902.  It is a popular piece in the flute repertoire and features a beautiful, memorable melody that recurs throughout the piece.  As a young flute student the beautiful melody captured my attention and I began learning it. Although I‘ve performed the Concertino with piano over the years, playing it with the Cape Ann Symphony is a dream come true. 

I am very much looking forward to seeing my colleagues and Yoichi again, but also to see those who have supported us through this incredibly difficult period. Each person makes a huge difference,  and we are grateful to all those who attend our concerts and also to all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the orchestra going. 

I welcome the chance to say thank you in person on July 18 at the post-concert meet and greet! 

Personally, the canceling of all live music that accompanied the Covid months has made me reevaluate what it means to play.  It’s a huge privilege and I cherish each opportunity to perform more than ever.  No one should take music making for granted – because, as we saw, it can go away very quickly.”

Stephanie Stathos, Principal Flute, Soloist

“While we love the worldwide accessibility of our virtual concert series, we at CAS recognize nothing beats hearing live classical music in person. At this time there are few opportunities for that live classical music experience. This concert really is a special treat to hear CAS in the summer. Normally we do not perform in the summer, but we are currently in the planning stages of full season in November and just could not wait until November to reunite with our audiences.

Maestro Udgawa, the musicians and the entire CAS organization are very excited about being able to perform these special outdoor live concerts on July 18.  Maestro Udagwa has programmed an excellent and distinctive selection of music from three unique composers to perform in a comfortable, intimate setting. We are thrilled audiences will also get the opportunity to meet and chat with Maestro Udgawa and the musicians following each concert.”

Fran White, Cape Ann Symphony (CAS) Board President

Maestro Udagawa looks forward to performing live and reuniting with CAS musicians , “The musicians and I are thrilled to be able to perform together, and are grateful to Cape Ann President Fran White and her husband David for opening up their large backyard to host a concert again this year. It is such a pleasant, tranquil (and bug free!) venue that offers the audience close proximity to the musicians – a chance we don’t get often in large concert halls.  The opportunity to make music and share it with an audience is always a thrill and more than ever, we musicians are aware of what a privilege it is. The musicians and I are looking forward to the post-concert meet and greet so we can thank our audiences in person for their unwavering support.”   

An Outdoor Musical Celebration of Summer will feature a chamber orchestra from the Cape Ann Symphony under the direction of Maestro Udagawa performing the music of Adolphus Hailstork, Cécile Chaminade and Joseph Bologne. 

“The three pieces are gorgeous, and our principal flutist Stephanie Stathos will be playing a solo in Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino. 

Adolphus Hailstork is a living composer who has written unbelievably beautiful pieces. Inspired by our email about Hailstork during Black History Month, I did a deep dive into Hailstork’s body of work and found it hard to choose just one piece for the concert! I decided on his Sonata de chiesa for its rich and romantic work for strings.

Cécile Chaminade’s Concertino is a piece I have admired for a long time, but when she was featured during Women’s History Month, it reminded me that I have to program something written by her. When this concert was in the planning stages, it seemed like the perfect time to feature some of her music and I knew Stephanie Stathos, our principal flutist would be the perfect soloist.

The Joseph Bologne Symphony No. 1 is a perfect classical symphony with clear themes that are light and yet full of energy. He had an extraordinary life, and it’s reflected in his music. I’m grateful that we are all starting to become more aware of the incredible contributions of these great composers and can’t wait to share them with our audiences!”

An Outdoor Musical Celebration of Summer Composers:

Adolphus Hailstork, 1941-

A prolific composer of music in every form from solo works to opera, symphony and chamber music. Adolphus Hailstork (1941- ) was born in Rochester, New York and grew up in Albany where he studied violin, piano, organ, and voice. He currently resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia. His works blend musical ideas from both the African American and European traditions.

Dr. Hailstork began his studies in composition at Howard University. He then attended the American Conservatory at Fontainebleau, France, where he studied with Nadia Boulanger. He received his Bachelor and Master of Music from the Manhattan School of Music and received his PhD in composition from Michigan State University. From 1969 to 1971, Dr. Hailstork taught at Michigan State University. He then served as professor at Youngstown State University in Ohio from 1971 to 1976, and in 1977 he became professor of music and Composer-in-Residence at Virginia’s Norfolk State University. He is currently a professor of music and Composer-in-Residence at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

Cecile Chaminade, 1857-1944

French composer Cécile Louise Stéphanie Chaminade (1857–1944) enjoyed considerable success touring as a pianist and performing her own works. In the United States she was so popular that a national group of musical clubs was named after her, and in England her Prélude for Organ was played at Queen Victoria’s funeral in 1901. In 1913 she was awarded the Légion d’Honneur, a first for a female composer. Composer Ambroise Thomas said, “This is not a woman who composes, but a composer who is a woman.”

When Ms. Chaminade was a young her family moved to the village of Le Vésinet, west of Paris, and acquired Georges Bizet as a neighbor. She began playing the piano, composing keyboard music and pieces and Bizet praised her talent. Franz Liszt also praised the talent of the  young pianist. Ms. Chaminade  was urged to study at the Paris Conservatory but her father forbade it, saying it would be improper for a young woman of her class. However, she was allowed to take private lessons with Conservatory faculty. Ms. Chaminade toured steadily around Europe in the 1890s, finding special success in England. Audiences, including the Queen, loved her. Queen Victoria invited her to perform at Windsor Castle.

Today, thanks to an enlightened interest in the music of women composers, Cécile Chaminade’s compositions have experienced a revival in popularity.

Joseph Bologne, 1745-1799

Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) is the first known classical musician of African descent. A man of many talents he was a composer, virtuoso violinist, conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris, and a renowned champion fencer.

Born in the French colony of Guadeloupe, he was the son of George Bologne de Saint-Georges, a wealthy planter and Anne Nano, his wife’s African slave. At the age of seven his father took him to France, where he received an extensive education. During the French Revolution, he served as a colonel of the Légion St.-Georges, the first all-black regiment in Europe, fighting on the side of the Republic. Mr. Bologne traveled throughout Europe and England, fighting in many battles and, in competition, beating some of the most famous swordsmen in his time, while also conducting, performing and composing numerous string quartets, many instrumental pieces and several operas.

SNAPSHOTS FROM “NONNA, WHAT IS ST. PETER’S FIESTA” AT THE GLOUCESTER STAGE COMPANY!

On the Saturday during Fiesta, my granddaughter Charlotte and I had the joy of attending Nonna, What is St. Peter’s Fiesta, a Gloucester Stage Company original adaption of the beautiful book of the same name, written by Laura Ventimiglia. The production was fantastic, the kids wonderfully talented, and I think it was so successful that Nonna, What is St. Peter’s Fiesta is going to become a tradition at Gloucester Stage.

Many, many thanks to Laura and Heidi for inviting Charlotte and I. Charlotte, who is not quite two, had a wonderful time–the show is appealing to a wide range of ages–from the very youngest to the very oldest nonnas and nonnos in the audience.
