The Louisiana Philharmonic starts the year with featured violinist Vadim Gluzman. His skilled performances weigh the best traditions from the 19th and 20th centuries, and brighten them with modern spice. Born in the Ukraine and playing violin since the age of seven, Gluzman has guest-performed in symphonies across the U.S. and Canada, including Seattle, Houston, Vancouver, and Toronto. In Europe, he has joined London's Philharmonic and Symphony orchestras, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Munich, and many more.

While Gluzman enjoys bringing his own unique twist to preexisting music, he does appreciate discovering new music. This passion has led him to collaborate with a number of current composers.

Gluzman's performance will breathe life into three delightful pieces, conducted by musical director Carlos Miguel Prieto:

Gluzman and Sibelius is set for Thursday, January 9 at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. House doors will open around 6:30p, with theatre seating opening at 7. The concert begins promptly at 7:30. Tickets are on sale from $20-99. Seats are limited.
