Jamestown Concert Association

Presents Our 2015-2016 Season

Experience Amazing Music!



Stanislav Khristenko, pianist

Friday, November 6, 2015

8:00 p.m. St. Luke’s Episcopal Church


1st Place Winner - 2013 Cleveland International Piano Competition

Music of the New World – Gottschalk, Barber, Glass, Gershwin


Fanfare Magazine boldly asserted, “There are many extremely gifted young pianists in the world now, and it is difficult to predict which ones will have a long career of importance. But I will be very surprised if Stanislav Khristenko is not one of them.” Ukrainian-born Stanislav Khristenko has captivated audiences on four continents since his first solo recital at the age of eleven and he shows no signs of stopping. With his 2013 win at the Cleveland International Piano Competition and The Plain Dealer describing his performance as a “tour-de-force of technical, musical and stylistic mastery,” he is a musician not to be missed. More impressive than his extensive repertoire is his precise yet delicate control, displaying a maturity beyond his years. Though just in his early thirties, the list of outstanding ovations he’s received from music halls in New York City to Berlin, Moscow to Hong Kong, have permanently set him above the bar.

7:30 p.m. Reg Lenna Center for The Arts

Light Classics and Holiday Pops


Year after year we are treated to Symphoria’s heart-warming notes of the holiday classics. The orchestra consistently captures the joy of the season, providing a range of original and traditional pieces that draw on the nostalgia of the winter wonderland scene. Join us this year for the dazzling sounds of Symphoria at the Reg Lenna Center for The Arts, festively adorned for our annual evening of light classics and holiday favorites. Arrive early for pre-concert refreshments and merriment in the lobby.

Manhattan Piano Trio

Friday, March 18, 2016

8:00 p.m. St. Luke’s Episcopal Church

Wayne Lee, violin; Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir, cello;

Milana Strezeva, piano


Although nothing immediately seems to tie the United States (Wayne Lee), Iceland (Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir), and Moldova (Milana Strezeva) together, the Manhattan Piano Trio found a way through music. These three American musicians represent starkly different backgrounds, and yet connect on a fundamental level to enjoy making music together. Hailed by critics as "a grand departure from the usual" (News Herald), the trio is one of the most creative, exciting, and dynamic young ensembles in America. The Washington Post described them as "impressive" and "outstanding," while the Sarasota Herald Tribune said "one seldom is privileged to enjoy music of such a wide range of styles performed with self-effacing skill and relaxed assurance." Now celebrating their 10th season, MPT is among the busiest groups in the classical music scene, having performed hundreds of concerts for enthusiastic audiences in almost 40 states, and in venues such as Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall, and the Ravinia Festival. www.manhattanpianotrio.com

Western New York Chamber Orchestra

Friday, April 15, 2016

8:00 p.m. Reg Lenna Center for The Arts

Glen Cortese, Artistic Director & Conductor


Mozart the Hero, Mozart the Legend


Favorite excerpts from Mozart Concertos and Operas

Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 183

Intertwined with excerpts from 1984 Milos Forman film AMADEUS


-                     18th century Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is widely recognized as one of the greatest in the history of Western music. Unlike any other – ever – he wrote in all the musical genres of his day and excelled in every one. His brilliance in composition was only matched by his flamboyant enjoyment of life. WNYCO, the professional Ensemble-in-Residence at the SUNY Fredonia School of Music, presents this combination of Mozart’s legacy with live orchestra and film excerpts. Internationally famed conductor and composer, Glen Cortese, leads the Chamber Orchestra in an exciting tribute to an amazingly prolific composer.

8:00 p.m. St. Luke’s Episcopal Church

Tim Gocklin, oboe; Kari Dion, clarinet; Matt Landry, saxophone;

Andrew Koeppe, bass clarinet; and Ryan Reynolds, bassoon


Hailed for their "imagination, infallible musicality, and huge vitality" (Fanfare Magazine), the Akropolis Reed Quintet performs an innovative, living repertoire with acclaimed precision. Founded in 2009 at the University of Michigan and the first ensemble of its kind to win the Fischoff Gold Medal in 2014, Akropolis also took Grand Prize at the MTNA and Plowman chamber music competitions consecutively in 2011, and in 2012 they were Runner-up at the Chamber Music Yellow Springs national competition, Silver Medalist at the Fischoff Competition, and Bronze Medalist at the International Chamber Music Competition held at the New England Conservatory. And don’t be lulled by this formal list of accolades – these guys make great music fun!
