Ever wonder how it would sound if an international concert pianist performed music for the holidays? Find out at Concerts By The Bay on Sunday, December 15, at 3 p.m. at Mathews High School, 9889 Buckley Hall Rd.
Virtuoso young pianist Thomas Pandolfi will perform a spectacular program titled “Holiday Spirit—Piano Works for the Season of Christmas.” Pandolfi will play several traditional favorite songs.
The program also includes music from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker”; “Christmas Time is Here” (from “A Charlie Brown Christmas”); and an arrangement of Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride!”
He also will play Beethoven’s powerful, and dramatic “Pathetique Sonata” as a centerpiece in celebration of that composer’s 243rd birthday.
“This is a concert that people of all ages will enjoy, so bring the kids for a wonderful afternoon together,” said an event spokesperson.
Youth through high school age are admitted free. Adult prices at the door are: one concert, $25; or a season ticket for three concerts, $45.
Pandolfi has performed as a soloist and with orchestras across the United States and Europe. He is lauded for his virtuosity, technical skill, and beautiful interpretation.
