The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra presents a Valentine’s weekend concert on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at the Palace Theatre (21 W. Otterman, 15601) in Greensburg, in-person beginning at 7:30 p.m. The concert will also be live-streamed for those wishing to watch from home.

The concert opens with Paul Dukas’ Overture to La Péri. “We begin the concert in a celebratory fashion, with a short, brilliant brass fanfare by Paul Dukas. For us, it heralds a new year of music-making and for me, it’s a bright, optimistic way to begin a concert of composers who all made their fame in Paris,” said Artistic Director Daniel Meyer. Guest pianist Michael Brown performs Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G and the evening concludes with Franck’s Symphony in d minor.

Michael Brown has been hailed by The New York Times as “one of the leading figures in the current renaissance of performer-composers.” Winner of a 2018 Emerging Artist Award from Lincoln Center and a 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Brown is also the First Prize winner of the Concert Artists Guild competition and earned degrees in piano and composition from The Juilliard School.

Artistic Director Daniel Meyer is looking forward to sharing the stage with Brown, “Michael brings his composer’s eye and ear to his performances. In addition to his thoughtful musicianship, he has a brilliant technique through which each note springs to life. I cannot wait to hear what he brings to the jazzy, soulful Ravel concerto when he makes his WSO debut.”

Ticket prices for the concert range from $18 – $63 and may be purchased at the door or can be reserved by calling the WSO Office at 724-837-1850 or online. Student Rush tickets are $5 the night of the show. Masks are required inside the theatre.

The concert will also be live-streamed, so viewers can watch from their homes, digital passes may be purchased for $20 for the concert.
