Symphony Finale to Feature Young Piano ‘Powerhouse’

The final concerts of the season are planned for next weekend

The Santa Barbara Symphony’s 2008-09 season will conclude with concerts featuring the Santa Barbara debut of young keyboard virtuoso Sergio Tiempo performing Tchaikovsky’s grand First Piano Concerto.

A protégé of Martha Argerich, Tiempo has wowed audiences at the Hollywood Bowl and the Kennedy Center, demonstrating what has been called “an uncommon poetic sensibility allied to a powerhouse technique.”

The program, led by Music and Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti, will open with the Tchaikovsky Piano Concert and conclude with Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, which is only fitting for the final concerts of the historic first Granada season.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
