The Longview Symphony Orchestra closes its 2011 - 2012 season with the Van Cliburn 2001 Silver Medalist Antonio Pompa-Baldi

Haochen Zhang, 2009 gold medal winner of the prestigious Van Cliburn Piano Competition, was to be guest soloist for the Longview Symphony on this the final performance of the 2011 - 2012  season. However, he had been ill for several days and had to cancel just a few days ago. Luckily, the Van Cliburn Association stepped in to locate an equally gifted competition winner, Antonio Pompa - Baldi, the 2001 Silver Medalist. He will be playing the Grieg Piano Concerto, always an audience favorite. Also on the program, Overture to Ruslan and Ludmila by Glinka and Dvorak's Symphony No. 5 in F Major, Op. 76. 

Longview Music Director and Conductor Tonu Kalam will be on the podium
