Here is a press release we received from the Melrose Symphony.
The Melrose Symphony kicks off its 98th Opening Night on Saturday, November 7 at 8 pm, in Memorial Hall. The concert features 18-year-old pianist Kadar Qian performing Rachmaninoff’s famous “Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini.”
Kadar Qian is no stranger to the Melrose Symphony; he first performed with the orchestra at the age of 13, and has since performed over 100 concerts, including a solo appearance with the Boston Pops and NPR’s “From the Top.” In addition to his performing career, Kadar Qian is the president of his class at Westford Academy, and has served as the Melrose Symphony’s Assistant Conductor since 2013.
Don’t miss this exhilarating and insightful performance led by the charismatic conductor Yoichi Udagawa. Bobby C’s Ristorante provides refreshments and food during the performance for a perfect night out supporting local culture and businesses in Melrose!
