Another Big Week on WOSU TV for Classical Music Lovers: The Boston Pops and The Van Cliburn
No plans for this Friday night? No problem. WOSU TV will be airing two concerts to knock your socks off and ring in the weekend.
Catch the documentary celebration of Maestro Keith Lockhart's 20-year career with the Boston Pops; The Best of the Boston Pops. This documentary features some of the best (recorded) moments from the illustrious 129-years of the Boston Pops beginning at 9pm on WOSU TV.
The Van Cliburn International Piano Competition takes place every four years in Ft. Worth, Texas, and it is not something to miss. The last winner, Vadym Kholodenko born 1986 in Kiev, Ukraine, has been described as having: "mesmerizing and exhilarating performances that brought the crowd to their feet, cheering him like a rock star, " according to Janelle Gelfand of Cincinnati.com.
That sounds like more than your average standing ovation.
Tune in to WOSU TV for this competition this Friday at 10pm, and let me know who you like the best and why.
