Berkshire Symphony

The Williams College Department of Music presents the Berkshire Symphony in concert on Friday, October 19, at 8 p.m. in Chapin Hall on the Williams College campus. There is a pre-concert talk with conductor Ronald Feldman at 7:15 p.m. in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall, adjacent to the main venue. These events are free and open to the public.

The season’s first concert of the Berkshire Symphony presents Joan Tower – “Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman #6,” and “Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber” by Paul Hindemith. Conductor Ronald Feldman and the 75-member orchestra are joined by guest artist Andres Diaz, cello, who performs Antonin Dvorak’s cello concerto.

About Andres Diaz
Since winning the First Prize in the 1986 Naumburg International Cello Competition, Díaz has exhilarated both critics and audiences with his intense and charismatic performances. He has earned exceptional reviews for his “strongly personal interpretive vision” (The New York Times) and his “bold and imaginative” playing (The Boston Globe) and was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant as well as a generous grant from the Susan W. Rose Fund for Music in 1998.
