INTERNATIONALLY-ACCLAIMED violinist Rachel Lee Priday performs live at the Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major (Paganini) Show at the Odeion School of Music on Saturday (25/06).

The Violin Concerto No. 1 is an exciting virtuoso showpiece.

It pays homage to Niccolò Paganini, an Italian violinist, violist, guitarist and composer.

He was the most celebrated violin virtuoso of his time and left his mark as one of the pillars of the modern violin technique.

The rest of the programme will consist of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 in D major and Mozart’s Magic Flute overture.

The spectacular show is sponsored by the International Arts Trust and presented in collaboration with the Odeion School of Music and the Free State Symphony Orchestra. The violinist Lee Priday will share the stage with the Free State Symphony Orchestra conducted by the vastly-experienced Bernhard Gueller.

Gueller has been music director of the Symphony Nova Scotia in Halifax (Canada) for the past 13 years. This is his third visit to Bloemfontein and the Free State Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets for the show are available at R150 (adults), R50 (students with valid cards and children 6 to 18 years) and R90 (pensioners, on presentation of valid card and group bookings of ten or more people). Contact Ninette Pretorius on 051-401-2504 and Ella Kotze (FSSO) on 051-401-2342 during business hours.
