Pianist Andrew Armstrong will open the Peninsula Music Festival’s annual February Fest on Feb. 11. The 2 pm concert will be held at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay.
Armstrong has delighted audiences across Asia, Europe, Latin America, Canada, and the United States, including performances at Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, and Warsaw’s National Philharmonic. His orchestral engagements across the globe have seen him perform a sprawling repertoire of more than 50 concertos with orchestra.
Armstrong’s debut solo CD featuring Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Sonata and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition was released to great critical acclaim. Armstrong is a favorite with the Peninsula Music Festival audience and returns regularly to perform in chamber and recital concerts. On June 9, he will return to Door County for a fundraising concert with violinist Frank Almond to benefit the Festival’s annual campaign.
The program for Feb. 11 will include the music of Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Prokofiev, Ravel and more. Full program details for all the February Fest concerts can be found at musicfestival.com.
