Winston-Salem Symphony presents Tchaikovsky’s Fifth with Matthew Troy

October 11, 2012

Ever hunger for something beyond a weekend trip to the mall and dinner at a greasy chain restaurant? Well, for about the same price you could enjoy a powerful Russian symphony, a Van Cliburn International Piano Competition medalist, one of today’s most exciting living composers, plus a local feel-good story that’ll put a big smile on your face.

Winston-Salem Symphony Associate Conductor Matthew Troy has been picked to lead his first ever Classic Series concert with the orchestra and he’s put together a real doozy of an international program to celebrate. Zhou Tian’s A Thousand Years of Good Prayers, Felix Mendelssohn’s first piano concerto with Italian guest soloist Antonio Pompa-Baldi , and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. The Classic series concerts are Sunday, October 14, at 3:00pm, and Tuesday, October 16, at 7:30pm, in the Stevens Center, and things get kicked off on Saturday night at 7:30pm, with The Kicked-Back Classics Series concert. Tickets start at just 13 bucks. Matt Troy will conduct all three performances and he dropped by to talk about it.
