‘A Night of Gershwin at the Colonial Center / May 30, 2012
Southside Virginia is set for a classical treat as world-class pianist Thomas Pandolfi performs “ A Night of Gershwin ” at the Colonial Center in South Hill on June 9 at 8 p.m.

Pandolfi is steadily building a reputation as one of America’s finest pianists. With a vast and diverse repertoire at his fingertips, he has been consistently praised not only for his compelling Mozart, passionate Liszt, and dazzling Gershwin interpretations, but also for innovation in his programming ideas.

A graduate of The Juilliard School at Lincloln Center for the Performing Arts, in the heart of New York City, Pandolfi earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees as a scholarship student.

The young pianist’s career has already included performances with such European orchestras as The George Enescu Philharmonic, of Romania (under Maestro Dimitru Goia), and The Moravian Philharmonic, of the Czech Repuplic (under Maestro Peter Schmelzer), as well as the American symphony orchestras of Mississippi, Cedar Rapids, Asheville, Princeton, and San Angelo, to name but a few. He has collaborated with such prominent conductors as Andreas Delfs, of Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra fame, Maestro Christian Tiemeyer, Ron Spigelman, music director of the Springfield Symphony, Springfield, MO, the late legendary clarinetist William Kushner, the brilliant young music director, Nicholas Palmer and conductor, Robert Hart Baker.

Equally popular as a recitalist, Pandolfi has appeared in concert halls worldwide. He has performed captivating debut recitals in Canada, Germany and China. Already a favorite in a number of Eastern European countries, Pandolfi continues to have extended and expanded tours in that part of the world annually. During the 2009-10 season, he was guest soloist in the world premiere of British composer Simon Proctor’s dazzling and unique “James Bond” Piano Concerto in London.
