Orange Rotary presents benefit concert
The Orange Rotary Club is honored to present An Evening of Classical Music with Francesco Attesti and Matteo Galli.
Francesco Attesti is an Italian pianist of international acclaim. The epitome of Francesco’s collaborative work to date is his performance with the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague, performing the European premiere of “Chiavi in Mano” by the Pulitzer Prize winning composer Yehudi Wyner. Francesco is a Paul Harris Fellow and member of the Rotary Club Cortona Valdichiana, District 2071 in Italy.
Matteo Galli is the chief organist at the St. Maria presso St. Satiro Basilica in Milan, where he is also the artistic supervisor and where he attends to the musical and concert planning furthered directly by the Basilica or in relationship with the most important musical Authorities of Milan. Together, in 2007, these two published the first recording of Verdi’s Requiem, transcribed for piano and organ, on the “Le Voci della Citta” label.
The benefit concert will be at the First Presbyterian Church in Orange, Monday, Feb. 9, at 6:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased for $25 at the office of Steirman, Whitfield & Co. All proceeds from the concert will go towards the Orange Rotary Club’s community service projects.
