Opening Night at the Greenwich Symphony
We have a block of excellent seats for the Greenwich Symphony's season-opening concert with piano soloist John O'Conor, Saturday, October 1, at 8 pm.
The program features Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58, as well as Mozart's Divertimento in D Major, K. 131, and Stravinsky's Danses Concertantes.
The performance also marks internationally-acclaimed pianist John O'Conor's return to the Greenwich Symphony for the first time since 2008. O'Conor is a former Director of the Royal Irish Academy of Music, and has performed at many of the world's preeminent concert halls, including Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and Vienna's Musikverein. He is particularly known for his interpretation and performance of the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. He won First Prize in the International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna in 1973, and for twenty years he has led the annual Beethoven Interpretation Course formerly given by legendary pianist Wilhelm Kempff, with whom O'Conor studied.
The concert will begin at 8 pm at the Greenwich High School Performing Arts Center, 10 Hillside Road. A pre-performance lecture with Assistant Conductor Joshua Bavaro starts at 7 pm.
The cost is just $35 for HCFC members or members of invited Harvard clubs and their respective guests, $45 for non-members.
REGISTRATION THROUGH THE HCFC HAS CLOSED, BUT TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR
