Frank Wiens

Critically acclaimed pianist Frank Wiens joins us to perform Grieg’s gorgeous Piano Concerto in A Minor. A sonic feast of brilliant colors and magnificent orchestral effects, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade captures the imagination of the audience and never lets go. Based on a series of scenes from The Arabian Nights, Scheherazade the storyteller is represented by beautiful violin solos that magically weave the tales together. Join us as we conclude our season with these two symphonic blockbuster hits!

Piano program director and professor of piano at the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music in Stockton, Frank Wiens lectures, leads master classes, adjudicates numerous piano competitions, and is a celebrated performer who keeps an active concert schedule in the U.S. and internationally.
