Roman Rudnytsky will be playing his final concert tonight at the Gov. Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center. The program is open to the public at the cost of $8 for adults and $5 for students. Half of the proceeds will be presented to the CNMI’s Thespians of the Western Pacific Islands scholarship program.
Tonight’s programs will include selections from such classical masters as Poulenc, Gershwin, Mozart, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and other musical greats, performed by a modern day master. Tonight’s concert will have different selections of music from the concert on Tuesday. The award-winning Marianas High School glee club, Rhythm ‘N Harmony, and the talented students of the DoReMi School of Music will open tonight’s program.
Rudnytsky is an internationally active concert pianist of Ukrainian background whose frequent performances take him all over the world—to every continent and places in-between. In addition to performances in capital cities and important musical centers, he often plays in places away from the musical mainstream, bringing the world and pleasure of classical music to audiences which seldom experience this type of music in live performance. He has received much acclaim in the world’s press and many repeat invitations.
During his visit to Saipan, he has traveled to many of the CNMI schools, playing and discussing music with the students. This is Rudnytsky’s seventh trip to the CNMI. Rudnytsky travels at his own expense and donates his time to the community. The Friends of the Arts, with the help of sponsors from the community, have hosted Rudnytsky’s stay.
The Friends of the Arts would like to thank the generous sponsors who make this visit possible: Bridge Capital, IT&E, Paradise Island Animal Hospital, Atkins-Kroll Toyota, Hertz Car Rental, Brabu Pharmacy, Triple J Saipan, PHI Pharmacy, Hardt Eye Clinic, J’s Restaurant, the Canton Chinese Restaurant, Café at the Park and HR Support, CNMI. Without their assistance events such as this would not be possible.
The Friends of the Arts invites the community to come and enjoy this special opportunity and an evening of Magical Music.
