Olga Lisovska, featured soloist with New Philharmonia Orchestra
March 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Dorogi Druzi, Dear Friends!
I would like to invite you to come this Sunday, March 12th, at 3PM at Brown Middle School in Newton, MA to New Philharmonia Orchestra’s concert!
As a featured soloist, I will be performing three virtuoso works:
– Juliette’s Waltz from Roméo et Juliette by C. Gounod
– “Солов’їний Романс”/ “The Nightingale’s Romance” by A. Kos-Anatolsky (New England premiere of the Ukrainian song, accompanied by a full orchestra)
– “Glitter and be gay” – Cunegonde’s aria from Candide by L. Bernstein
Conductor – Jorge Soto
The orchestra sounds glorious, and it is an absolute treat to be performing these beautiful works with them! It is especially important to me to be performing the Ukrainian art song by A. Kos-Anatolsky. The magical beauty of the melody will transport you to the peaceful and warm summer night of Ukraine!
The Orchestra will also perform works by Lili Boulanger and Cesar Franck.
See you there on Sunday!
