Violinist Lindsay Deutsch will perform at Orchestra Nova San Diego’s benefit concert on Jan. 22 at Qualcomm Hall, 5775 Morehouse Dr., in Sorrento Valley. The evening, which begins at 6 p.m., will include wine and appetizers, silent and live auctions, a raffle for a case of premier wine, the concert and a VIP post-concert party at the WineSellar & Brasserie.
Deutsch, a former child protégée known for her expressive and lively performances, will play selections from the works of George Gershwin (“Rhapsody in Blue,” “Porgy and Bess” medley), Manuel de Falla (“Suite Populaire”), Johannes Brahms (“Scherzo”), and a Beatles medley from various composers.
The event is sponsored by American Airlines and Valenti International to celebrate Orchestra Nova’s fourth season under the leadership of artistic director Jung-Ho Pak. The conductor is known for his creativity and passion for providing an unforgettable show.
“We want to reach the 98 percent who don’t know anything about classical music or who don’t think they like classical music and give them such a wonderful experience through live performance, video and personal connections that they can’t wait to come back for more,” said Pak of the orchestra’s Nova Classics and POPS! concerts.
Lindsay Deutsch is donating her performance for this event to help raise funds for Orchestra Nova and its music education programs in schools throughout San Diego County. Lindsay, like Pak, is dedicated to supporting music education and to finding new and exciting ways to present classical music.
