Plainfield Symphony's Saturday Fantastique tonight

Gold medalist Brianna Tang is soloist at tonight's Symphony.
Tonight's Plainfield Symphony concert features Brianna Tang of Edison, winner of the 2012 Young Pianist of New Jersey competition. Billed as 'Saturday Fantastique', the concert includes Debussy's Afternoon of a Faun and Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique.

Tang will be featured in Anton Arensky's Fantasia on themes of Ryabinin, op. 48. Also known as the
Fantasy on Russian Folk Tunes, the piece is part of the legacy of this once famed composer and performer, perhaps best known today for having been the teacher of such greats as Rachmaninov and Scriabin.

Plainfield Symphony concerts get under way at 7:00 PM at Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church under the baton of Conductor Charles Prince.

Tickets: $50/reserved, $30/general admission, $20/Seniors and students. Children under twelve are admitted free.

Parking in the Crescent Church lot, at Swain Galleries and on the street.
