“For the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra’s latest concerts, Music Director David Danzmayr won’t be anywhere near the conductor’s podium. In fact, there won’t be any conductor at all on stage.
Instead, all eyes – and of course, ears – will be on acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein, who, in addition to being the guest soloist for concerts Dec. 11-12, in the Southern Theatre, will also lead the orchestra, too.
The shows will be performed without a conductor, meaning that Dinnerstein will not only be responsible for her own playing at the piano but also in guiding the orchestra itself through various pieces.”
