RHODE ISLAND PHILHARMONIC LIVE VIDEO-STREAMED ALL-MOZART PROGRAM
January 23, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
DAVID ROBERTSON AND ORLI SHAHAM TO JOIN MEMBERS OF THE RHODE ISLAND PHILHARMONIC FOR A LIVE VIDEO-STREAMED ALL-MOZART PROGRAM SATURDAY, JAN. 23 FROM THE VETS
The Rhode Island Philharmonic & Music School is delighted to announce that famed conductor David Robertson will return on Saturday, Jan. 23 to lead the winds of the Orchestra in Mozart’s Serenade for 13 Winds, the magnificent Gran Partita. For this all-Mozart concert, streamed live from The Vets in Providence, Orli Shaham will join members of the Orchestra for Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds.
David Robertson and Orli Shaham have graciously stepped in for Artistic Advisor Bramwell Tovey, who has been advised by doctors not to travel from Canada where his treatment regimen continues during this surge in COVID-19. David Robertson first conducted the RIPO in September of this year, opening the season with music of George Walker, Bach and Tchaikovsky. “When I first visited the Rhode Island Philharmonic & Music School last September, I was deeply impressed by the organization’s commitment to music for its state,” says Robertson. “Music education is very important to me and to Orli, and what has been built there in Providence is so impressive. The Music School serves the heart of the community and is an inspiring model of its kind.”
The Jan. 23 performances will be presented at The VETS at 5 p.m. for subscriber in-person attendance only and again at 8 p.m. for subscriber in-person attendance and live stream. The 8 p.m. performance is available to a public audience via livestream.
