This concert is being presented in memory of Neil Glaser, a renowned Lakesider who recently passed away. We are honored to remember him and his many contributions with this Lakeside Symphony Orchestra performance.

The Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will continue their summer concert series with guest conductor Max Rabinovitsj and pianist Milana Strezeva. The program will feature "Concerto for Violin and Piano in D Minor" by Felix Mendelssohn and Ludwig van Beethoven's "Symphony #8 in F Major."

Rabinovitsj attended the Royal Brussels Conservatory of Music in Belgium and is a graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music.

He has been the concertmaster of the Ottawa Philharmonic in Ontario, Cincinnati Symphony, Saint Louis Symphony, Nice Orchestra in France and the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Portugal. He was also the Associate Conductor of the Nice and Gulbenkian Orchestras.

In chamber music, Rabinovitsj participated in the Marlboro Music Festival for six years and founded the Saint Louis String Quartet, which was in residence at Washington University. In Europe, he founded the Trio Da Vinci, which toured extensively.

Rabinovitsj made his debut as a solo recitalist in New York City's Lincoln Center and performed Bach's "Double Concerto" in Carnegie Hall with Isaac Stern. As a conductor, he became known for his interpretations of the classical repertoire and his work with youth orchestras.

He has been a professor at Washington University, the University of Texas and the University of Evora in Portugal. Rabinovitsj has also taught at the Nice Conservatory in France. He has formed a new Trio Da Vinci with Dror Biran, pianist, and Paul York, cellist.

Rabinovitsj currently resides in Naples, Fla. where he is the Artistic Director of the Naples Orchestra and Chorus and participates in many chamber music concerts.

Rabinovitsj will solo on the violin for the Mendelssohn "Concerto" with pianist Milana Strezeva. The Moldovan-American pianist was only 11 years old when she began playing chamber music with her clarinetist father and her mother, a renowned soprano. Her love for family collaboration eventually grew into a passionate advocacy of vocal and instrumental chamber music.

Strezeva is a founding member of the award-winning Manhattan Piano Trio, one of the most creative and dynamic young ensembles in America. She has performed with them in more than 30 states, Australia, South Africa and Italy.

The Washington Post described the Trio as "impressive" and "outstanding," while the Sarasota Herald Tribute said "one seldom is privileged to enjoy music of such a wide range of styles performed with self-effacing skill and relaxed assurance."

Having studied piano with Bella Davidovich, Julian Martin and Tatiana Gershfeld, Strezevahas also studied chamber music with Bruce Brubacker, Felix Galimir and Jonathan Feldman.

Strezeva received her bachelor and master degrees from The Julliard School on a full scholarship.

Currently, she lives in Naples, Fla. and is an Artistic Director at the Grand Piano Series.

Following the concert, there will be a reception in the Hoover Auditorium lobby for guests to meet Rabinovitsj and Streveza.
