Information

To coincide with US Independence Day celebrations, the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) is getting an American touch for two concerts next week. American guest conductor Jeffery Meyer will join the TPO to perform a symphonic work by US composer Aaron Copland. Entitled "An American In Bangkok", the concert will take place at the College of Music, Mahidol University, Salaya campus on July 5 at 7pm and July 6 at 4pm. The programme will feature Copland's Symphony No.3, a symphonic work which contains one of Copland's most easily recognisable melodies - the Fanfare For The Common Man. Joining the TPO will be young Thai violinist Pitchayapa Lueangtawikit who will perform Saint-Saens' Violin Concerto No.3. Pitchayapa, 16, won the first prize at the Anzca Modern Violin Competition - in her first national competition - and received a gold medal at the Settrade Young Musician Competition 2009 when she was only 12. The following year she brought home third prize in the Fourth Beethoven Competition in Thailand in the 13-17 year age category and her second Settrade Young Musician Competition gold. Tickets cost 300 and 500 baht (100 baht for students). For reservations call 02-800-2525-34 ext 153-4 or visit www.thailandphil.com. There's a Salaya Link shuttle bus service from Wong Wian Yai BTS station to the university. For the shuttle schedule, visit www.music.mahidol.ac.th/salayalink.
