Pandolfi to perform Jan. 3 at Palace

CROSSVILLE — Pianist Thomas Pandolfi will perform at the Palace Theatre in Crossville on Jan. 3 as part of the Performing Arts Alliance of Rural Tennessee (PAART) First Friday Concert Series. His musical credits and education belie his young age-a graduate of the Julliard School, he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees and has toured Eastern Europe and most of the U.S. Most of the states he missed until now will be covered within this current 2013-14 tour, which includes the new year’s debut at the Palace. 

The concert will feature works by Strauss, Liszt and Rachmaninov. He is considered to be a leading interpreter of George Gershwin. He has collaborated with such conductors as Vincent Zito, Dimitru Goia, Mihail Agafita and Gordon Johnson. The Washington Post has described him as “an artist who is the master of both the grand gesture and the sensual line.” During his career, Pandolfi has released six CDs. 

Pandolfi has performed in London, Canada, Germany and China. The press has called him “a standout among today’s young pianists, demonstrating grace, finesse and polish." Crossville will be privy to Pandolfi’s virtuosity and strength for one evening of music. Tickets are available for $12 for adults and $6 for students at 931-484-6133 or online at Pandolfi’s encore performance (he played the Palace last winter) begins at 7 p.m. The retro theater is located in downtown Crossville at 72 S. Main St. PAART is a 501(C)3 non-profit performing arts organization.
