Join us on the stage of Miller Symphony Hall for an up close and intimate setting of Chamber Music.
Please note, this concert is on MONDAY EVENING
Maestro Hector Olivera is a Buenos Aires native, studying music from the age of three and composing his first suite at nine years old. Olivera continues to dazzle audiences with his performances on the organ, and after a Sunday performance with Allentown Symphony Orchestra’s own Diane Wittry he will grace the stage with a solo blow-your-socks-off performance. Throughout his concert career, Olivera has performed in prestigious venues including the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Carnegie Hall in New York, Royal Albert Hall in London, Melbourne Town Hall and Brisbane City Hall in Australia, and many more. He continues to astound audiences with both solo classical and orchestral compositions, now released on DVD.
