BIOS:

Spencer Myer is our “Third Sunday” November 19 concert artist.  Please click here for bio information.  You don’t want to miss his performance!  Spencer is a former American Pianists Association fellow, and we’ve enjoyed having him on our calendar of concerts several times.  Each time he returns, the crowds go wild!  He’s not only a consummate pianist of extraordinary magnitude, he’s also one of those persons you want in your life forever.  An absolute gem of a human being.

 

Daniel Alfred Wachs is new to InConcert Sierra and we’re excited to have him on our house concert series.

Conductor/Pianist Daniel Alfred Wachs emerged on the international scene following his debut with the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg in November 2010, leading a world première by Toshio Hosokawa at the Grosses Festspielhaus. The Austrian press praised: “Engaging, rhythmically inspired, precise in its execution, the “Mambo” was equal to a performance by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra!” Wachs has guest conducted Orange County’s Pacific Symphony, the Auckland Philharmonia, the National Symphony Orchestra (as part of the National Conducting Institute), the Sarasota Orchestra, the Fort Worth Symphony, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, the Oakland Symphony, the Monterey Symphony, the Spartanburg Philharmonic, the Palm Beach Symphony and New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center. Wachs has also served as assistant conductor at the Cincinnati Opera and for the French première of Bernstein’s Candide at the Théâtre du Châtelet, a Robert Carsen co-production with La Scala and the English National Opera. In 2015, Wachs made his debut on the acclaimed new music series Jacaranda: Music at the Edge in Santa Monica, conducting works by Weill and Stravinsky.

A pianist as well as a conductor, Wachs’ performance with the Minnesota Orchestra “proved a revelation, delivering a technically impeccable, emotionally powerful performance of two Mozart piano concertos and a pair of solo works,” raved the St. Paul Pioneer Press. With the encouragement of Zubin Mehta, Wachs began his studies with Enrique Barenboim in Tel Aviv before pursuing studies at the Zürich Academy and graduating from The Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School. He has also participated at such festivals at Aspen, Tanglewood and Verbier. Wachs has also been entrusted with preparing orchestras for Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Spivakov, and has served as Assistant Conductor to Osmo Vänskä at the Minnesota Orchestra and at the National Orchestra of France under Kurt Masur. Additionally, he has served as cover conductor for the Houston Symphony and for the Rotterdam Philharmonic on tour.
