The Las Vegas Philharmonic invites you to join them for their Rising Star Concert featuring an evening of romantic music on Saturday, February 12th. As a special Valentine's gift to the community, the Las Vegas Philharmonic is offering open seating, with a ticket price of only $35.
The concert will feature guest conductor, Alexander Prior, recently hailed as one of the "world's greatest living musical prodigies." Having only just turned 18, his achievements have prompted some in the music industry to compare him to the likes of Mendelssohn and Korngold, such is the maturity and depth of his artistic work.
At the age of 12, Prior was commissioned by the Moscow State Ballet to write Mowgli, which was soon premiered at the Kremlin to great international acclaim. Since then, his compositions have premiered in some of the world's greatest concert halls, most recently Horizons (2010) at London's Barbican with the Royal Philharmonic and �Gogol' (2009), his latest symphony, with the St Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra and Choir.
In January 2010 Prior was appointed by the Seattle Symphony as Chairman's Fellow, a position created especially for him where he conducted a number of orchestral projects including Mahler's 4th Symphony and Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
On February 12th, Prior will conduct the Las Vegas Philharmonic as they perform Vaughan Williams' Norfolk Rhapsody, No. 1 in E Minor, Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op.60, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, Overture-Fantasy and Nielsen's Helios Overture.
The pre-concert conversation will start promptly at 7:15 pm, led by Alexander Prior. Patrons will have an opportunity to learn more about the music and composers featured in this performance.
Tickets are available by calling the UNLV box office at 702-895-2787. The ticket price is $35 and seating is general admission only.
