Terrence Wilson)

AfriClassical's most extensive consideration of the career of the African American pianist Terrence Wilson came on Sept. 25, 2009, when we posted: “AfriClassical Interviews Terrence Wilson on Naxos CD of 'Deus ex Machina' by Michael Daugherty.” We recently learned of his participation in three concerts in two days with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra. The first two concerts will take place at 2 PM and 8 PM at the King Center in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday, March 6, 2010. The third will be at 7:30 PM on Sunday, March 7, 2010 at Community Church of Vero Beach:

“March 6, 2010 Saturday 2 & 8 PM
King Center, Melbourne
Terrence Wilson, piano
Lukas Foss – Night Music for John Lennon
Camille Saint-Saens – Piano Concerto No. 2 with Terrence Wilson
Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 7

“The BSO offers a Symphonic Tribute to several musical giants, from JS Bach to John Lennon, with this remarkable program. The late American composer Lukas Foss began composing his Night Music the morning after John Lennon was killed. Saint-Saen's brilliant 2nd Piano Concerto features an opening movement that is a loving tribute to the keyboard music of JS Bach. The concert concludes with Beethoven's magnificent Seventh Symphony, described by Wagner as 'the apotheosis of the dance.'"

“March 7, 2010 Sunday 7:30 PM
Brevard Symphony Orchestra: With conductor Christopher Confessore and pianist Terrence Wilson. Community Church of Vero Beach, 1901 23rd St., Vero Beach”
