Classical Concert

The City of Wilton Manors Leisure Services Department invites you to attend our Classical Concert at Hagen Park Community Center on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018. The concert begins at 7:00pm and there is no charge for the event. Leisure Services annually collaborates with the Piatigorsky Foundation from New York City to provide performers for this anticipated event.

This year we are happy to announce that we will have the pleasure of experiencing the musical talents of Victor Asuncion and Evan Drachman.

Cellist Evan Drachman, Founder and Artistic Director of The Piatigorsky Foundation, has combined musical talent with artistic vision to create a rich and varied career.  Mr. Drachman spends much of his time performing recitals, concerti and chamber music in the United States and abroad.  As Artistic Director of The Piatigorsky Foundation, he has become one of this country’s most respected authorities on the presentation of live classical music to diverse audiences.  

Hailed by The Washington Post for his “poised and imaginative playing,” pianist Victor Santiago Asuncion is recognized as an artist of innate musical sensitivity, fiery temperament and superb technique.  As a recitalist and concerto soloist, he has appeared in major concert halls in Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Turkey and the Philippines.  He played his orchestral debut at the age of 18 with the Manila Chamber Orchestra and his New York recital debut in Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall in 1999.
