A DENIMED EVENING OF BEETHOVEN & BRAHMS
Andrew Armstrong, piano
It’s that time of year again, where the SC Phil and the audience adorn their favorite Tennessee tuxedos and dapper denim to enjoy a casual evening of classical music at the Koger Center with BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS! This year, guest pianist Andrew Armstrong joins the SC Phil to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5. Praised by critics for his passionate expression and dazzling technique, Armstrong has delighted audiences across Asia, Europe, Latin America, Canada, and the United States, including performances at New York’s major stages including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., London’s Wigmore Hall, the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, the Rudolfinum in Prague and Warsaw’s National Philharmonic.
