Symphony show will go on with replacement pianist

Staff report

A different guest artist will bring Ravel's Piano Concerto to life at the Paducah Symphony Orchestra's show Saturday.

Scheduled guest artist Fabio Bidini cannot play Saturday because of unforeseeable circumstances, according to a symphony news release. Two-time Grammy Award nominee Terrence Wilson will replace Bidini on the piano.

Wilson has established a reputation as one of today's most gifted instrumentalists. He has appeared with the symphony orchestras of Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Washington, D.C., (National Symphony), San Francisco, St. Louis and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. His accolades include the SONY ES Award for Musical Excellence, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the Juilliard Petschek Award. He has been featured on several radio and television broadcasts, including NPR's "Performance Today," WQXR radio in New York, and programs on the BRAVO Network, the Arts & Entertainment Network, and public television. In December 2010, Wilson was nominated for a Grammy Award for his recording of Michael Daugherty's Deus ex Machina for Piano and Orchestra with the Nashville Symphony.

Wilson is a graduate of The Juilliard School, where he studied with Yoheved Kaplinsky. A native of the Bronx, he resides in Montclair, N.J.

He has also offered to present the scheduled master class at 3 p.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church in Paducah.

Tickets for Saturday's concert start at $16. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center, 100 Kentucky Ave.

Tickets for Sunday's master class are available for $10 and are included in the season ticket package.  Student tickets are always free.  To purchase tickets or learn more, please visit paducahsymphony.org or call 270-444-0065.
