Miami Takes Music Hall
March 4, 2019 @ 7:30 pm$9 – $24
What do you get when you combine a ground-breaking musical work, a world-class pianist, and the Miami Symphony Orchestra? Pure magic.
Miami University Music professor Glen Roger Davis’ cutting-edge Concerto in F makes its U.S. premier at Music Hall. Accompanied by University of Cincinnati CCM’s Piano Department chair, Michael Chertock, on piano and Ricardo Averbach as conductor, the performance will bring Davis’ beautiful and touching work to life. It’s a delightfully riveting, yet intense, work that might well become a prototype of symphonic music for the new millennium.
Concerto in F sold out the first edition of its recording for the label Vienna Modern Masters. The piece is a unique blend of international patterns—Latino, Caribbean, Indian Continent, African, Celtic Folk Music, and American Popular music—fused with traditional elements of symphonic music, especially those at the crest of symphonic idiomatic evolution.
Miami students will play alongside their professors – many of whom are members of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra – making the evening even more extraordinary. Join us as we celebrate Miami’s superb musical creativity!
