The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts
Hello everyone! Sorry to be a bit behind with blogging – we’ve been in the middle of a whirlwind spring tour, and now that we’re back home and settled in Boston for a bit I’m ready to catch you up.
A little over a week ago we were in Carmel, Indiana to tape a show at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts. It’s a gorgeous new hall with fantastic acoustics.
The taping was terrific and featured an array of talented young musicians. Kicking things off was 11-year-old violinist Nathan Meltzer from nearby Bloomington. He played a piece by Hungarian violinist and composer Jenö Hubay.
Following Nathan was 18-year-old guitarist Tyler Rhodes from Texas who told a powerful story about his life and personal philosophy and then performed “Andaluza” by Enrique Granados.
15-year-old cellist Sydney Lee was up next. She expertly performed Chopin’s Introduction & Polonaise Brillante, Op. 3 and talked with Christopher O’Riley about her strong faith.
We then met the members of Quartet Tzigane, four teenagers from Minneapolis, who performed the fourth movement from Piano Quartet in D minor by William Walton. They played passionately and were totally in sync and exciting to watch.
The show closed with talented young pianist, 13-year-old Evelyn Mo who performed Debussy’s L’isle joyeuse.
This episode will air the week of April 16, but to tide you over until then, check out this sneak peek!
