Bianconi won the Silver Medal at the Seventh Van Cliburn International Competition in 1985, then made his recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 1987. His website, philippebianconi.com, carries the tag “The Poetic Piano.”
Bianconi will join the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor JoAnn Falletta to perform Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The program also will include Dvorak’s Symphony No. 6.
The Moiseyev Siberian Dancers, as part of the Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company, showcase the folk dances and lavish costumes of their native Siberia. The troupe was founded in 1960.
The mission of the Daytona Beach Symphony Society is to bring the excitement of classical and modern music, dance and opera to the widest possible audience. We inspire and encourage the students of Volusia County to develop an appreciation for music. By bringing the highest quality national and international symphonic orchestras and soloists to Volusia County we generate an awareness and appreciation of music, dance and opera for all residents and visitors.
