I'm so very excited to announce my symphony debut this coming Valentine's Day weekend with the Menomonee Falls Symphony, under the direction of Michael Kamenski. This gig is a dream come true and I'm so blessed to have been invited to share the stage no only with the fantastic MFSO but also with my dear friend and pianist/composer Kostia Efimov. We've been preparing this program for months and I really think it will be something special.
Music from the American Songbook, as well as by Kostia and contemporary pop composers, will weave a tapestry that covers all aspects of Love - from the innocence of young love to the complications of adult love and the everlasting power of true love. Combine great songs with incredible orchestrations (written by members of the symphony, Kostia and my good friend Dr. Jeremy Fox) and you will have some amazing music for your soul. I've heard this wonderful group of symphony musicians and they are so talented. You will also be treated to several selections with just the Orchestra alone and I know it will be stunning.
To my knowledge, Kostia has not had his music performed locally with a symphony....at least not recently....and if you're not familiar with his amazing compositions, you're in for a treat. This Russian born pianist/composer studied at the famed Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in St. Petersburg from a young age and was hailed a prodigy. Kostia has honed his craft and makes the piano sing whether it's on one of his own compositions, on a classical or contemporary tune. He has toured internationally and currently plays piano for Daryl Stuermer (of Genesis fame) all over the country and Europe. He is one of the most sought after professional piano players in the region and we are so blessed to have him in Milwaukee!
Under the leadership and artistic direction of Conductor Michael Kamenski, this annual Valentine's concert is sure to be a sell out. Get your tickets now for this fantastic dinner/performance and spend your Valentine's weekend with us at the esteemed Silver Spring Country Club in Menonomee Falls. For tickets, call 262-679-3905. For those of you not in the immediate Milwaukee area, I assure you, this will be worth the drive! :-)
I hope you can join us!
