Concert in Elmira (March 4, 2007)

Post by diegobueno » Sun Mar 04, 2007 10:25 am

Anyone living in the southern tier of New York State* might want to check out a concert by the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes in Elmira, New York this afternoon at 4:00. Pianist Yuja Wang will be playing the Prokofiev 2nd Concerto. Wang is the winner of the 2006 Gilmore Young Artists Award, and from what I heard at yesterday's rehearsal, she is just AMAZING. She can't be any older than 18.

The concert will be held at the Clemens Center in Elmira, New York today at 4:00. Conductor Marietta Cheng also leads the orchestra in the Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition and Dvorak's The Noonday Witch. If you look closely you'll see diegobueno tooting the bass clarinet.

* That means you, Lance.

I would be there ... trust me, since I know Marietta Cheng. I don't know the pianist, however. I am leaving for a 3:00 p.m. concert at the Anderson Center/Binghamton University now to hear violinist Elmar Oliveira (a former Binghamton resident and friend) perform, among other things, Tchaikovsky's "Souvenir of Florence," and the Shostakovich Piano Quintet. It's either feast or famine with regards to concerts to go to. But good luck with your Elmira concert nonetheless. I'll be thinking of you all.
