Join the WSO Valentine’s Weekend for a french-inspired concert you will be sure to love. “We celebrate the return of the wonderful pianist Maxim Lando, who made such an impression on us all for our 50th Season Opening Night that we had to bring him back to the Palace Theatre as soon as possible to play Saint-Saëns’ charming and virtuosic 2nd Piano Concerto,” said Daniel Meyer, Artistic Director.

The concert opens with Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite followed by Maxim Lando performing Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No 2. The concert concludes with Mozart’s Symphony No. 40.

 “I can’t wait to return to Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra to perform Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 with Daniel Meyer conducting on a special Parisian Valentine concert at The Palace Theatre! I had a blast with this orchestra last year, loved getting to know the community, and I’m so happy to be invited back for more music-making,” said Mr. Lando

 17-year-old pianist Maxim Lando’s most recent accolade is the prestigious 2020 Gilmore Young Artist Award. He first received national attention at the age of fourteen, appearing on the piano bench alongside Lang Lang to perform the parts intended for Mr. Lang’s injured left hand, on tour and at Carnegie Hall’s Gala Opening Night with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The collaboration was chronicled in >The New York Times.

Mr. Lando won First Prize and four special prizes at the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. He recently opened the 2019-20 Young Concert Artists Series with a recital debuts in Washington, D.C., at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, and in New York in the Peter Marino Concert at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall. He was also just named Musical America’s “New Artist of the Month” for January 2020.

Artistic Director Daniel Meyer will conduct the evening’s performance. As Music Director of the Erie Philharmonic and Director of Orchestral Activities at Duquesne University, he has reinvigorated orchestras with his innovative programs, engaging presence and keen musical intellect.

Ticket prices for the concert range from $16 – $61 and may be purchased >online or by calling the WSO Office at 724-837-1850
