APO Concerts This Weekend: Beethoven and Hansen

This Saturday the 15th at 2:00 PM and then Monday the 17th at 7:30PM, the Albuquerque Philharmonic is presenting our Winter Concert. On the program is the Romantic Symphony by Howard Hanson, the Beethoven Triple Concerto, and A Christmas Festival by Leroy Anderson. Admission is free so there's no better way to hear some great music!

The guest conductor for this concert is Thomas Shoebotham, an AYS alumni now living in Palo Alto, CA. He brings a fresh approach and a passion to this compositions. For the Beethoven, we have soloists Megan and James Holland on violin and cello, respectively, and Pamela Pyle on piano. These are some very fine soloists and the Beethoven is a great piece!

The concert on Saturday afternoon is located at the South Broadway Cultural Center and then the concert on Monday evening will be at Keller Hall at the UNM Performing Arts Center.

I hope to see you there!
