I am extremely pleased to enter my second year as Music Director of the Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra; the passion and dedication of our musicians is a constant inspiration to me!
I am thrilled to present this season of noteworthy musical intersections: classical standards, mixed with lesser known works; our outstanding musicians, sharing the stage with international virtuosos, right here in beautiful State College.
I am especially excited about the soloists who will join us for our concerts this year: Canadian violinist Claudia Schaer, Israeli clarinetist Moran Katz, and local artists James Lyon and Timothy Shafer in a double concerto for violin and piano.
The Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra is your own jewel in State College. I am so excited to stand on the podium for each concert; the combined energy from the musicians and you in the audience is truly magical. It is an honor to share this musical journey and I hope to see you all at our concerts.
