The San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra will open their 94th concert season on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. with “Mozart, Simon, and Shostakovich.” To be performed at the historic California Theatre of the Performing Arts, the concert will include three different, but related pieces of music representing three distinct musical periods. In addition, Pianist Dynasty Battles will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor.
“Pianist Dynasty Battles is taking the classical world by storm with his charisma and musicianship,” shared Maestro Parnther. “We are so fortunate we were able to collaborate with him on this upcoming concert where, in addition to his outstanding Mozart, we will be treated to a world premiere encore.”
Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Battles is a visionary concert pianist with a unique approach to his blend of music. Battles has won a variety of accolades on regional and national levels. He has been featured together with soprano Marietta Simpson, in the Philadelphia Inquirer, and on music critic David Patrick Stearns’ radio program, “Creatively Speaking”, on Philadelphia’s WRITI (90.1 FM).
