The VSO Presents Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3
November 3 @ 7:00 pm
One event on November 4, 2018 at 7:00pm
Join the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as they welcome back local pianist extraordinaire Dimitri Zhgenti to the stage for a performance of Khachaturian’s monumental Piano Concerto. Vancouverite and successful instructor of a private studio, Dimitri Zhgenti has been playing the piano for over two decades. A student of renowned concert pianists Alexander Toradze and Mark Westcott, Mr. Zhgenti’s intense artistic styling showcases grand Russian tradition.
The orchestra continues its 40th Anniversary of world-class music with Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, the “Scottish Symphony.” Inspired by the ruins of Holyrood Chapel at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Scotland, the picturesque symphony swells with emotion and incorporates components of Scottish folk dance and folk music, hence its informal title, “Scottish Symphony.” Music Director and world-renowned conductor Maestro Salvador Brotons returns to Skyview Concert Hall for his 28th season.
The performances are Saturday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at Skyview Concert Hall, 1300 NW 139th Street, Vancouver, WA. Tickets are available for this concert and all 2017-2018 events at vancouversymphony.org or (360) 735-7278.
