Garland Symphony Orchestra Concert VIII
It is likely that the very earliest music ever created was for dance; the first time our distant ancestors first banged on a log with a stick, someone undoubtedly broke into the Neanderthal shuffle! Things have come a long way. From ballet to break dancing, music and dance are now inseparable partners. The Garland Symphony Orchestra will be featuring Alex McDonald, piano performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Pianist Alex McDonald gave his orchestral debut at age 11, and has since then soloed with the Orquesta Sinfónica del Estado de Mexico in Toluca, Mexico, the Utah Symphony, the Louisiana Philharmonic, the Fort Worth Symphony, the San Antonio Symphony, the Mississippi Symphony, and others. Mr. McDonald is currently a doctoral student at the Juilliard School, studying under Yoheved Kaplinsky and Julian Martin. He also holds a Masters at Juilliard, and he did his Bachelors under Russell Sherman at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, with Academic Honors and Distinction in Performance. In addition to Mr. McDonalds’s performance the GSO will be performing Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. To purchase tickets call 972-205-2790 or visit www.GarlandArtsBoxOffice.com.
