The VSO is honored to welcome Piano Virtuoso Orli Shaham and Marcelo Lehninger, Music Director of the Grand Rapids Symphony, to Skyview Concert Hall for a Beethoven, Bach and Brahms spectacular!
The concert begins with Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major, BWV 1068, which includes the beloved Air on the G String, followed by Beethoven’s famous symphony No. 8 in F Major – one of the final compositions of his “heroic decade”. Mrs. Shaham takes the stage with Maestro Lehninger and the orchestra to deliver an explosive finale performance of Brahms’ monumental piano concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op 83.
WHEN: Sat, Jan 21 3:00 pm
Brazilian-born Marcelo Lehninger is the newly-appointed Music Director of the Grand Rapids Symphony. He previously served as Music Director of the New West Symphony in Los Angeles, for which the League of American Orchestras awarded him the Helen H. Thompson Award for Emerging Music Conductors.
Both Ms. Shaham and Maestro Lehninger are represented by Opus 3 Artists.
