This concert will include the romantic and impressionistic “Mysterious Isles,” “Onedin Line,” “Aquarium,” “Phoenix Rising” and the fiery “Slavic Dances” with piano solos by Sten-Heinoja. Special guest conductor will be Saint-Clair’s personal friend from Amsterdam, Aldert Vermeulen, conductor of the Amsterdam Opera. Vermeulen is also known as the piano accompanist for the violinist Jaap van Sweden, new conductor of the New York Philharmonic.
Internationally respected classical concert pianist/composer Saint-Clair and his wife, portrait/wildlife artist Audrey Sanders came here to Lake County from their European home in 2005. They quickly established the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra as a formidable new cultural force here in Central Florida. Made up of more than 60 professional musicians from all over the world, the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra is the resident professional orchestra of Lake County, Florida with an established reputation for musical excellence. Now into their 14th season, the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra remains a professional symphony of immense talent and perseverance, for which the media has proudly proclaimed them as “small-town charm with world-class music!” The 15th Season Concert Series will soon be announced.
