I left a crucial bit of info out of a Spotlight item in print on Sunday: The location of the Simone Dinnerstein concert.
It will be at the Martin Woldson Theatre at the Fox., 1001 W. Sprague.
Here's the rest of the info, as printed Sunday:
A lot of classical piano fans were wowed by Simone Dinnerstein during her previous appearances here with the Gonzaga Symphony Orchestra.
Dinnerstein played with Gonzaga's orchestra in 2007 and 2009 - in between recording albums that topped the Billboard classical charts.
Now, she's coming back on Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m. for another concert with the GU orchestra. She'll play Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major and Gershwin's “Rhapsody in Blue.”
Tickets are a bargain for an artist of this magnitude: $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students (free for those with a Gonzaga ID). Seats are general admission and you can purchase tickets at the door.
I have some excellent news to report: Meredith Oatman-Thompson raised enough money with her Sunday fundraising concert (see post from a few days ago) to pay for tuition and books for her entire sophomore year at Interlochen Arts Academy.
Her father said lots of people showed up in support, including a number of Interlochen Arts Academy alumni.
Violinist Amanda Howard-Phillips has joined the Spokane String Quartet for its new season, replacing Tracy Dunlop, who has moved to Michigan.
Howard-Phillips is on the Gonzaga University faculty and is current the principal second violin for the Spokane Symphony.
The quartet’s new season consists of these five concerts:
The rest of the quartet consists of Mateusz Wolski, Jeannette Wee-Yang and Helen Byrne.
Season tickets are now available through www.spokanestringquartet.org. Single tickets will go on sale in September.
