A Day With Brahms, Kodaly & Schumann
Sandy Eastman will be providing LLCC members with yet another opportunity to attend his pre-concert class and the symphony dress rehearsal for the San Luis Obispo Symphony concert coming up in March.
The San Luis Obispo Symphony offers as a gift to the community free dress rehearsals of its concerts during the afternoon (1pm-3pm) preceding the evening of the performance.
Join Sandy and the San Luis Symphony for the dress rehearsal of "Classics 4: Blooming Talent" at Classics in the Cohan featuring three pieces by three different composers:
JS Brahms/ Variations on a Theme of Haydn
Zoltan Kodaly/ Dances of Galanta
Robert Schumann/ Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54
Guest conductor will be Giorgi Jordania, Conductor in Residence Tblisi State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre Tblisi, Georgia. Guest artist is his daughter Salome Jordania, a remarkable 14-year old Georgian pianist. A native of the Republic of Georgia, Salome and her father Giorgi first visited San Luis Obipso as guests of local teacher Dr. Botso Korisheli, also a native Georgian and founder of the Youth Symphony.

In the afternoon, the class, as a group, attends the dress rehearsal of the performance.
