The Elgin Symphony Orchestra will host a master class with renowned cellist Lynn Harrell at the Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove, Elgin, at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3. 

Classes are free and open to the public. Students may apply for the opportunity to perform for Harrell. Applications are available for download on the ESO website, www.elginsymphony.org. The application deadline is Sept. 7.

The Elgin Symphony Orchestra will host two master classes during its 2015-16 season. The second class, with violinist Rachel Barton Pine, will take place in April. 

In a master class, students are selected to perform for an expert who will then work with them on performance technique, musicality and presentation.  

Harrell’s presence is felt throughout the musical world. A consummate soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, conductor and teacher, his work throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia has placed him in the highest echelon of today’s performing artists, states a news release.

Harrell is a frequent guest of many leading orchestras, including those in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Ottawa and Pittsburgh. He has also toured extensively in Australia and New Zealand, as well as Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

From 1985-93 he held the international chair for cello studies at the Royal Academy in London. Concurrently, from 1988-92, he was artistic director of the orchestra, chamber music and conductor training program at the L.A. Philharmonic Institute. In 1993, he became head of the Royal Academy in London, a post he held through 1995. Since the start of the 2002-03 academic year, Harrell has taught cello at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the release states.
