Type of Event Arts & Culture

Description The Vilna Shul is pleased to welcome renowned thereminist Thorwald J√łrgensen for a Sunday afternoon concert in our historic sanctuary. Join us at 3:00pm and hear J√łrgensen combine the classic works of Russian Romantics like Tchaikovsky's "Serenade Melancolique" and Spanish melodies together with those of Lithuanian Jewish composer Joseph Achron. J√łrgensen will also share his expert knowledge of the haunting, graceful and versatile theremin with the audience. A concert for enthusiasts and the curious alike, this will be J√łrgensen's only appearance in the Boston area this season. About our guest: Thorwald J√łrgensen has performed as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestral therminist throughout Europe, North America and Russia. At the age of 14, J√łrgensen began his first percussion lessons with Peter Elberse, timpanist for the Dutch Philharmonic Orchestra. After finishing high school J√łrgensen went on to study classical percussion at the Utrecht and Tilburg Conservatory, where he studied with Werner Otten, Hans Zonderop, Johan Faber and Peter de Vries. He graduated with a Music Masters as a student of Arnold Marinissen. Taking up the theremin was a logical progression for J√łrgensen as the instrument requires skilled coordination of the left and right hands. As theremin playing technique also resembles that of a string instrument, Thorwald is currently being coached by Saskia Boon, former cellist with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. --- The Vilna is easily accessible by public transportation at the Red Line Charles/MGH stop. Validated parking is available for $5 dollars.
