The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra comes to Daytona Beach
The Daytona Beach Symphony Society's 64th Season at the Peabody Auditorium (600 Auditorium Blvd), Daytona Beach, continues on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.
The evening's program includes selections from Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Saint-Saëns. Conductor Dmitry Yablonsky will also perform as soloist, on cello. Having made his orchestral debut at age 9, Maestro Yablonsky plays two very rare cellos with great history: the Guarneri 1726, and the Goffriller 1700. And the New York Times lauds, "his playing has enormous warmth and communicative flair."
The free pre-performance talk will help to further illuminate the performance, and takes place in the Rose Room in Peabody Auditorium, at 6 p.m., given by Dr. Rose Grace.
