“We are so lucky and privileged to have Maestro Polyakov as our full-time principal conductor and he is helping us build a first-class symphony orchestra as we continue to perform unforgettable concerts,” says Partridge. “With his musical gifts and talent, we can see how our symphony has improved immeasurably since he joined us last year.”
The Scottsdale Philharmonic’s next concert on Sunday, March 19, 4-6 p.m. at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second St., will be conducted by world-class principal conductor, Maestro Polyakov. The March 19 concert will feature Grieg’s Piano Concerto performed by soloist Vitaly Serebriakov, and also featuring works from Dvorak, Schubert, and Suppe.
Pianist Serebriakov is an Artist-in-Residence with the Scottsdale Philharmonic who has performed across the world in such venues as Carnegie and Steinway Halls in New York City. Mr. Serebriakov is a prize winner in numerous international piano competitions, and was on the faculty at the ASU School of Music and ASU Community School of Music.
“The vision of the Scottsdale Philharmonic becoming a major symphony in Arizona is just beginning,” Partridge explains. “We are in the process of expanding our executive board and welcome anyone who might want to join us in sharing our new vision of a first-class symphony in Scottsdale. We also welcome anyone who would like to be part of our Scottsdale Philharmonic Advocacy Alliance, whose members are passionate about classical music.” For more information, contact Joy@scottsdalephilharmonic.com.
