Lidia Kaminska… “transforms the accordion into a massive force -- and burns through [classical repertoire] with virtuosic speed and technique."- Philadelphia Magazine
The evening will feature a unique program of dance music introduced with visuals and commentary by Maestro Alastair Willis who will take the audience on a dramatic journey through Russian jazz, Argentine tango, and 1920s German musical theater and a stunning performance by Bandoneon soloist Lidia Kaminska.
Grammy-nominated conductor Alastair Willis is music director of the South Bend Symphony Orchestra and has guest conducted major orchestras including the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra and China National Orchestra.
Accordionist Lidia Kaminska, who plays the Bandoneon in this concert, has performed extensively in both the U.S. and Europe. Her repertoire includes a broad range of classical, contemporary, and avant-garde music, and she is changing the perception of the accordion from parlor entertainment to a serious classical instrument.
VIP Tickets are $69 for preferred seating and a post-concert reception. Regular Tickets are $59.
