The Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) sixth concert of the season, "Adventureland," will be presented by guest conductor Bruce Anthony Kiesling and features music from Stravinsky, Gershwin and John Williams.

Active in a wide variety of music, Kiesling has a national profile as a conductor and music educator from coast to coast. His experience ranges from classical repertoire at Carnegie Hall to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl conducting with Stevie Wonder and Latin superstars Juanes and Gloria Estefan.

His current Music Director positions include the Adrian Symphony in Michigan and the Sequoia Symphony Orchestra in California. He is also Artistic Director and Conductor of the School of Orchestral Studies at the New York Summer School of the Arts.

Kiesling’s other passion is music education. He was the conductor for the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, a project of the Los Angeles Philharmonic that brings free-of-charge musical opportunities to underserved youth in the city.

He has conducted at the nation’s most storied halls, including the Kennedy Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall and Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood, to name a few. Recently, he created several original orchestrations to accompany the legendary rock band Journey for their performance at the Hollywood Bowl.

Kiesling’s previous positions include Resident Conductor of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra and the Assistant Conductor of the Pasadena Symphony and Pops.

Currently, he conducts the University Orchestra and Opera at the University of California Santa Cruz.

Kiesling holds graduate degrees from the University of Michigan, the University of Miami and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

The concert will also feature pianist Andrew Tyson. Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as "a real poet of the piano," Tyson is emerging as a distinct musical talent.

He made his orchestral debut at the age of 15 with the Guilford Symphony as winner of the Eastern Music Festival Competition. After early studies with Thomas Otten of the University of North Carolina, he attended the Curtis Institute of Music. He later earned his master's degree and artist diploma at The Julliard School, where he won the Gina Bachauer Piano Competition and received the Arthur Rubinstein Prize in Piano.

Tyson is the recipient of the 2013 Avery Fisher Career Grant, laureate of the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition and first prize winner of the 2015 Géza Anda Competition, where he was also awarded the Mozart and Audience Prizes.

He has appeared as soloist with the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, National Orchestra of Belgium, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Las Vegas Philharmonic, North Carolina Symphony, Edmonton Symphony and the Louisville Orchestra.

Guest conductor Bruce Anthony Kiesling will lead a Symphony Pre-Concert Talk at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10 in Hoover Auditorium. Each talk gives the audience an opportunity to learn more about the evening’s Lakeside Symphony Orchestra (LSO) concert music, composers and guest conductor
