The 2012–2013 season of Symphony Parnassus continues this month with the ensemble’s second concert. The featured soloist will be the sixteen-year-old pianist Hilda Huang, who has already appeared with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, has won the International J. S. Bach competition, and has made her debut at Carnegie Hall. For her Parnassus appearance, she will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Opus 19 concerto in B-flat major (the second one he published but the third he composed). The program will take the usual overture-concerto-symphony format, beginning with the overture composed by Gioachino Rossini for his opera L'italiana in Algeri (the Italian girl in Algiers). The symphony will be Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Opus 64 in E minor (his fifth). Music Director Stephen Paulson will conduct.
This concert will take place on Sunday, January 20, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (50 Oak Street, near the corner of Van Ness Avenue and Market Street) at 3 p.m. Single tickets are $22 for general admission, with $15 tickets available for seniors and students with ID. Tickets can be purchased online through a Brown Paper Tickets event page. Further information may be obtained from the Symphony Parnassus Web site or by calling 415-409-6411.
