The Southwest Florida Symphony will perform All About Music at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center on Friday, August 26 at 8 p.m., featuring a special appearance by local teen piano celebrity Noah Waddell.
Noah has performed at concert halls, performing arts centers and churches. Noah’s “Concert for the Kids” at BIG ARTS on Sanibel raised more than $30,000 for the new Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. He currently donates some of his time and talents weekly to the “Arts In Healthcare” program at Lee Memorial Hospital. He has also appeared on the PBS television show “Curious Kids” and the Christian Television Network.
After winning a concerto competition at age 12, Noah made his orchestral debut, performing three concerts as a soloist with the Tampa Bay Symphony. In 2014, Noah won his first international piano competition that was held in Fort Collins, Colorado. Recently, he performed on NPR’s nationally syndicated radio show “From The Top” with host Christopher O’Riley. Noah is a ninth grader at Crosspointe Academy.
The August 26th performance, led by Maestro Nir Kabaretti, will include:
• Gerald Finzi, Eclogue for Piano and Strings
• Ernest Bloch, Concerto Grosso No. 1
• Joseph Haydn, Piano concerto in D
• W.A. Mozart, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
• Johann Strauss, Pizzicato Polka
