The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes guest conductor Victor Yampolsky to The VETS stage for Barber’s Essay No.2, Beethoven’s Symphony No.7, and Bernstein’s Symphony No.2 (The Age of Anxiety), featuring soloist Spencer Myer on piano. The TACO Classical Concert is Saturday, March 17, 8:00pm; the Amica Rush Hour Concert is on Friday, March 16, 6:30pm.
“We’re looking forward to the upcoming program with Victor Yampolsky on the podium, and Spencer Myer on the piano,” said David Beauchesne, Executive Director, RI Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School. “Victor came to the United States from the Soviet Union in 1973 to study conducting at Tanglewood at the invitation of Leonard Bernstein. He and Spencer will team up on Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety for piano and orchestra. Paired with works by Barber and Beethoven, it is a wonderful night of music.”
