YORKTOWN — Sine Nomine Presents… and St. Mark Lutheran Church are partnering with the Senior Center of York to present Thomas Pandolfi on Wednesday, Oct. 11.

The program will be free and open to the public. A reception following the program will provide an opportunity to meet and talk with Pandolfi and purchase recordings.

Pandolfi began his music career early on at The Juilliard School where the young prodigy caught the influential ears of Vladimir Horowitz, who would become his mentor, and composer, Morton Gould.

Since then he has sold out stages all over the world, including Lincoln Center Alice Tully Hall, Strathmore, The Kennedy Center, Kiev Opera House, Bucharest’s Romanian Athenaeum and London’s Cadogan Hall.

Pandolfi is hailed for his interpretations of Polish masters such as Chopin and Paderewski, and is known for playing everything from Bach to Gershwin, with Morton Gould saying, “It’s the finest performance of Gershwin I have heard since the composer himself.”

“His original and virtuosic transcriptions of works such as West Side Story and Phantom of the Opera, are described as one-of-kind, jaw-dropping, and dramatic encores that keep audiences of all ages returning to his performances again and again,” St. Mark Lutheran Church said in an announcement.

The performance on Oct. 11 will begin at 1:30 p.m. For more information, visit St. Mark Lutheran’s page.
