From the KC Symphony website:

Matthias Pintscher, music director designate

Philippe Quint, violin

LEONARD BERNSTEIN Symphonic Dances from West Side Story

ERROLLYN WALLEN Violin Concerto (KCS co-commission)

CHARLES IVES Three Places in New England

SERGEI RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances

Matthias Pintscher and the musicians of the Kansas City Symphony made an immediate connection with one another in their electrifying performances together last March. Because of that incredible creative synergy, Pintscher is now music director designate and he returns with another outstanding program. Savor this wonderful music in a gripping performance by Matthias Pintscher and your Kansas City Symphony.

Filled with pulsing drive and spellbinding harmonies, Errollyn Wallen’s new Violin Concerto draws on her eclectic sensibilities. Born in Belize and now living in a lighthouse in northern Scotland, Wallen is fascinated with the rhythm of life and her music reflects deep listening. American violinist Philippe Quint returns to Kansas City to bring this new concerto to life. Quint’s opulent sound and insightful approach to new works are the perfect match for Wallen’s music.

I played the Julia Irene Kauffman Casavant pipe organ during Pintscher's program with the KCS last March, and I'll be back at the organ for the Ives work in this performance. I can't wait to perform with Maestro Pintscher again!

These film concerts are so much fun, with a giant screen above the live orchestra playing the music! I'll be playing keyboards on stage for this event.
