Event Details

Centennial Theatre

Brahms and Chopin are considered some of the most invigorating classical romantics of their time. Under the direction of conductor, Joshua Weilerstein, and pianist, Adam Golka, this VSO touring performance is sure to enliven the heart.

Joshua Weilerstein – Conductor

Making his subscription debut with the New York Philharmonic this year, Joshua Weilerstein also enters his third season as the orchestra’s Assistant Conductor. In 2009 Mr. Weilerstein, then twenty-one years old, was unanimously named the winner of the 2009 Malko Competition for Young Conductors in Copenhagen, Denmark. His first-prize honors included a series of engagements with major Scandinavian orchestras, the first of which was the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in June 2009, marking Mr. Weilerstein’s professional conducting debut.

Adam Golka – Piano

Born and raised in Texas to a family of musicians from Poland, 26 year old pianist Adam Golka has won widespread critical and popular acclaim with his “brilliant technique and real emotional depth” (The Washington Post). He has garnered international prizes including the 2008 Gilmore Young Artist Award, first prize in the 2003 China Shanghai International Piano Competition and the 2009 Max I. Allen Classical Fellowship Award of the American Pianists Association.
