Performed by Paolo Gualdi, piano
Wilson Center, Cape Fear Community College, 701 N. Third St., Wilmington, NC 28401
The Wilmington Symphony is thrilled and delighted to have one of its own, world-renowned pianist, Paolo Gualdi, to kick off the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary Season! Serving as UNCW’s Visiting Artist in Music, Paolo has dazzled audiences around the world. Paolo will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Come and see why Charleston’s Post and Courier reported, “He had his audience under his complete control. You really almost have to sit on your hands to keep from applauding until the end.”
Also featured on the concert is Georges Bizet's Symphony in C, written when Bizet was a 17-year-old student and rediscovered in 1933 becoming one of his most popular works due to its precocious invention and charm.
