The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra has announced that it will usher in its 75th season with conductor Bramwell Tovey on Saturday, Sept. 28, for his inaugural concert. The season is Tovey’s first in his role as Artistic Advisor for the Orchestra and its Music School. He will conduct 19 concerts during the 2019-2020 season.
The season opener features Grammy-winning pianist Yefim Bronfman and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.3, which is known as one of the most challenging pieces of classical music to perform. Tovey and the Orchestra will also perform Bartók’s popular Concerto for Orchestra.
