Piano soloist Carlos Ibay returns as special guest artist for the Manassas Symphony Orchestra’s Silver Anniversary Season in Silver Jewels on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 7:30 p. m., under the baton of Music Director James Villani. Mr. Ibay is performing Piotr Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor. He last performed with the orchestra in 2000.
Mr. Ibay, who has been deprived of sight from birth, has gained a world-wide reputation as both a concert pianist and a singer. His talent has reached the stages of Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Carnegie Hall in New York City, The Cultural Center of the Philippines, The Rachmaninoff Center of the Arts in Russia, The Teatro Storchi in Modena, Italy, and to the concert halls of Brazil, Australia, Israel and Cuba. Mr. Ibay is an amazing musician, and his performance should not be missed.
The concert program also includes Antonín Dvořák’s tragically beautiful Symphony No. 7, previously performed by the MSO, as well as the beautiful La Cimarosiana by Gian Francesco Malipiero, and The Alcotts, an interesting and not often performed piece by American composer Charles Ives.
Season subscriptions and individual concert tickets are available from the Hylton Center Box Office or by calling 888-945-2468. All children and student tickets (through college) are free.
