Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra Returns to St. Thomas

Sept. 21, 2006 — This year marks the return of the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra in concert. The performance, at the Reichhold Center for the Arts, is scheduled for Sept. 30 at 8 p.m.
"This is their seventh visit," said Brian Squires, a member of the Forum, an organization dedicated to bringing high-profile artists to St. Thomas.
"We wanted to offer something special and with the help of Maestro Roselin Pabon, conductor, we were able to get up-and-coming Cuban pianist Luiba Pupo as the featured soloist in Tchaikovskys First Piano Concerto."
The program will begin with the overture to the "Marriage of Figaro" by Mozart, followed by the piano concerto. The second half of the program features Symphony No. 8 by Dvorak.
Tickets are available at Dockside Bookstore, Modern Music (Nisky), Parrot Fish, Interiors (Ft. Mylner), Home Again (Red Hook) and, of course, Reichhold.
This production is brought to you by the Forum, together with the Reichhold Center for the Arts. Prices for the tickets are $75, $38 and $10.
Season sponsors are FirstBank, First Insurance and Tropical Shipping. Major sponsors for the evening are First Bank, Charaf and Company, and Choice Communications.
Neil Prior, chairman of The Forum, said that "this concert is the first event in a new Forum season. A season which will offer even more than the past years. The Forum is on the move!"
