KAMUELA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA FUNDRAISER: PIANO SALON RECITAL WITH REFRESHMENTS & PUPUS
Internationally acclaimed concert pianist, Boris Konovalov, will return to the Big Island to play a solo recital program at a private residence near Hawi, in North Kohala, at 2:30 pm on Sunday, September 27, 2009. The recital repertoire will include well-known classical compositions such as Mozart’s Sonata in A Major -“Turkish March,” Beethoven’s Sonata #8 in C Minor -“Pathetique,” Brahms’ “Variations on a Theme by Paganini,” and various Schubert waltzes. In addition to the spectacular setting and wonderful music, attendees will enjoy wine and other refreshments, as well as pupus by Blue Dragon Coastal Cuisine.
After receiving first prize in the 1997 All-Russia Piano Competition, Boris Konovalov began a successful career as a concert pianist, and went on to win many other international and domestic competitions. He also earned a doctorate in music from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire . Dr. Konovalov has performed in concert with symphony orchestras around the world, and has also given solo recitals, conducted master classes, and adjudicated at music festivals and competitions worldwide. In addition, he has recorded more than 100 solo recitals and concert programs for radio and television in the USA, Canada, Russia, Israel, China and South Korea, and made six CD’s.
The suggested donation for this recital is $50.00, since it is a fundraiser for the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra Society. Dr. Konovalov supports the orchestra’s mission, which is to bring quality orchestral music to the Big Island of Hawaii. He will be appearing with the orchestra next month in the first regular season concert of its sixth season. Donations are much appreciated, as there are overhead and administrative costs that must be covered to accomplish the goal of keeping the orchestra’s concerts free of charge. The Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra Society is a charitable organization described in Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, so your donation may be tax deductible.
