What made the Sondheim tribute special was its music director and pianist, Sam Davis, my admiration for whom is unbounded. He and Pamela Hunt, the director, had the wit to include a gifted young violinist, Christian Hebel, in the program. Hebel brought great flair to an arrangement by Davis of four waltzes from “A Little Night Music” and, a special treat, the seldom heard but haunting theme from “Stavisky”.

Symphoria wrapped up its inaugural season May 16 under the baton of principle pops conductor Sean O’Laughlin, with the musicians of Symphoria taking the audience on a tour of the great film scores of the past 75 years. The concert featured internationally renowned violinist Christian Hebel and the Syracuse Pops Chorus, making the experience a triple treat for movie music fans.

Violinist Christian Hebel took the stage for a reading of “Selections from ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’” as arranged by John Williams for the 1971 film. The solo was played with passion and fire

Hebel performed again on “The Kiss” from “Last of the Mohicans” and “Theme from ‘Schindler’s List,” a beautiful, melancholy dialogue between Hebel and Alina Plourde’s English horn solo, which set the audience on its feet. Hebel’s final piece was the sensual tango from “Scent of a Woman,” which was played with precision and artistry on all fronts.

Aerosmith’s “Dream On” with solos from his fantastic band - which included a guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, a saxophonist, and out-of-this-world violinist Christian Hebel.

All kidding aside, Groban had no trouble sharing the spotlight with his band. A magnificent instrumental of the Aerosmith classic, “Dream On” featuring Christian Hebel on violin, was especially entertaining to watch. Steven Tyler’s ‘voice’ never sounded better, especially on the high notes.

Violin soloist Christian Hebel played soulfully with an Irish flair. He transitioned into “Dream On” by Aerosmith with full band accompaniment. I could never have imagined a violin version of “Dream On”, but I can say honestly that it rocked. I really enjoyed it.
