The City of Wilton Manors Leisure Services Department invites you to attend our Classical Concert at Hagen Park Community Center on Wednesday, January 9, 2019. The concert begins at 7:00pm and there is no charge for the event. Leisure Services annually collaborates with the Piatigorsky Foundation from New York City to provide performers for this anticipated event.
This year we are happy to announce that we will have the pleasure of experiencing the musical talents of violist Marcus Thompson.
Since his exciting and heralded New York debut at Carnegie Hall in 1968, Mr. Thompson has continued to delight audiences with his wide breadth of repertoire spanning four centuries on both the viola and viola d’amore as concert soloist, recitalist, and in chamber music.
Mr. Thompson has appeared
as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony, The
Cleveland Orchestra, the St. Louis Symphony, The Atlanta Symphony, the Boston
Pops, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Chicago Sinfonietta and the Czech
National Symphony. In recital, Mr.
Thompson has appeared in series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York,
the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston, Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis,
the Terrace Theater at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Herbst Theater
in San Francisco, and at numerous colleges and universities.
