New West Symphony to hold fourth Masterpiece Series concert at Barnum Hall
Violinist Rachel Barton Pine will make her New West Symphony debut in the fourth Masterpiece Series concert of the 2012-13 season at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24 at Santa Monica High School’s Barnum Hall, 601 Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica.
Pine will play Piotr Ilyich Tchiakovsky’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, Opus 35 for the symphony.
A Chicago native, Pine began violin studies at age three and made her professional debut four years later with the Chicago String Ensemble. Her earliest appearances with the Chicago Symphony (at ages 10 and 15) were broadcast on television. She has since gone on to perform with major orchestras and in recital around the world, said John Baldon of New West Symphony.
“She has recorded extensively on the Cedille, Warner Classics and Dorian labels, and her diverse musical interests range from the Baroque with her Trio Settecento to heavy metal with her doom/trash metal band Earthen Grave,” Baldon said.
The program also includes Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, Opus 55 (Eroica). Founding music director and conductor laureate Boris Brott will conduct the performance.
Tickets are priced from $25 to $98 and are available by phone and at the New West Symphony office. Student rush tickets priced at $10 are available at the box office beginning 30 minutes prior the performance.
